Unite Within Capita Life and Pensions

Unite exists to look after the interests of our members and to protect and improve your terms and conditions of employment. Unite is the only union recognised, in Capita L&P, to negotiate with the company on behalf of staff. Capita has rapidly expanded into the financial services sector over the last few years. Many thousands of staff have transferred into the company on TUPE protected terms which were negotiated by Unite. Offshoring and reorganisation are oftern features of the work/contracts that Capita has secured in L&P therefore defending our members job security remains top priority for Unite.

Unite is currently recognised in Ex Prudential (Reading & Belfast), Ex Resolution (Glasgow & Wythall), Ex Co-op Insurance Services CIS (Manchester).

We have a network of workplace reps at each site working on your behalf on day to day issues. We also have a National Capita Committee made up of lead reps from each site. For further info please refer to 'how to contact us?' or have a look at your local site pages within this website
