UNION is the 1st social demand platform for the self-employed workers which is born in France, after 3 years of experimentation and listening to this community.

UNION is indeed the 1st platform which is not built as a commercial network but whose primary vocation is the fight against social dumping, the construction of new rights, the recognition of the particularities of self-employed worker.

Union'goal is giving voice to nearly 2 million workers, defending them and building new rights because our french institutions and labor law were not intended for such workers.

UNION is an independent association which aims to listen to, bring together and defend self-employed workers with multiple statuses, including that of micro-entrepreneur, slasher, self-entrepreneur ...

UNION has, as its founding member CFDT, 1st trade union organization in France for employees, making use for UNION'members its know-how in terms of organization and its professional branches' knowledge.

UNION's partners are Mutuelle Générale, which will put its expertise of health insurance and social economy at the service of the self-employed workers and Union Services, a European specialist in insurance and provident schemes at the service of union members.

Self-employed workers need to organize their collective representation and rights's creation. But they also demand shared services to easily access additional social protection services, insurance, credit, housing guarantee, amenities and to be supported in their legal, management, communication, etc.

UNION will also be a service platform accessible to its members.
