Equity’s magazine has won the Best Trade Union magazine prize at the TUC communication awards in July.
This was a notable win as it takes place during the 150th anniversary celebrations of the Trades Union Congress. Equity’s magazine won the award ahead of much larger unions such as Unite, Unison and the NEU.
The judges commented: “The magazine oozes quality with high production values, superb photography and bright and crisp design. There’s a good balance between news and features, with well-written articles addressing a really interesting mix of subjects. It’s notably got the best diversity of any union magazine.”
Matt Hood, Equity’s assistant general secretary, said: “This is great news, particularly considering the size of Equity’s communications team. As in so many areas, this union consistently punches above its weight.”
Equity has won 13 communication awards in the past seven years. The union has also been in the top five of the most influential UK trade unions on social media in the past five years.
