URTU

United Road Transport Union's picture

URTU is the only specialist road haulage, distribution and logistics trade union in the UK. The Union was first registered in 1890 as the United Carters Association. Over the years the organisation has undergone several name changes before taking its present day title in 1964.

It is a totally independent union and is not affiliated to any political party. URTU is affiliated to a number of trade union umbrella organisations and trade bodies throughout the world. Our influence is particularly strong in member countries of the European Union where we are represented on all the important labour movement committees and within political and government institutions.

Our firm foundations, based on a dedicated and experienced team of staff, will serve the industry well throughout the 21st century.
