For the road ahead

United Road Transport Union

The Union's Head Office functions will, until further notice, be temporarily reduced, from 24 March 2020. The Administrative function will accordingly be operated with a skeleton staff.

As you will understand, due to the COVID 19 pandemic, we are taking all precautions necessary to combat the spread of COVID 19. The environment is changing rapidly and we will continue to respond to Government advice.

It would be appreciated if you could contact your Union Regional Officer in the first instance, should you require urgent advice.

The Regional Officers are as follows:

Region 1 - Mr Lee Pimbley -01257 483674 - e-mail

Region 3 - Mr Neil Hunter - 07876 594524 - e-mail

Region 9 - Mr Kevin Ashby - 07775 852990 - e-mail

Region 11 - Ms Joanna Richards - 07912 215888 -

We would also request that you do not leave any ‘voicemails' on the Union's Head Office answer machine. Please ensure all calls are directed through your Regional Officer.

You can also e-mail should you require.

There will inevitably be some disruption to normal service levels, particularly in respect of administrative matters, although it is hoped that this will be kept to a minimum.

Our Union acknowledges the vital work that our members are carrying out on behalf of our country.  With the collaboration, kindness and support that we give to each other, we will get through these difficult times together. Your understanding and co-operation is therefore greatly appreciated.


The United Road Transport Union (URTU) is the UKs only union dedicated to serving the interests of workers in road haulage, distribution and logistics. We are an active union constantly campaigning, negotiating and lobbying to seek to ensure that members are properly rewarded for the skilled work they do.

If you work as a driver (HGV / LGV / lorry / van / forklift truck driver) or warehouse operative, the URTU is the union for you. Let us be there to represent you and stand up for your rights.
