About Us

The Universal Credit Claimants’ Union exists to improve the lives of claimants, to fight for the abolition of Universal Credit, and to publicise claimants’ experiences of an aggressive, punitive system that constitutes an assault on the living standards of ordinary people. 

We believe we are all more valuable than merely a supply of labour for an economy, and that to be disadvantaged in an unjust system should never be described as failure or as a justification for disrespect and degradation.

In place of Universal Credit, we’ll be campaigning for the introduction of Universal Basic Income – a system that would ensure everyone is able to live comfortably regardless of whether or not they’re part of the labour supply.

Our organisation is based on Local Groups and Regional Assemblies coordinated by local, area and national delegates. We are controlled horizontally and democratically by our membership. 

There are no membership fees. Funds are the product of donations. Our funds are shared equally among our local groups.
