Important changes to indycube membership forthcoming
"We're bringing certainty to an uncertain world."
 
As many of our members will already know, we’ve been going through some changes recently. We’ve opened up our Community Benefit Society membership, taken on 3 new full-time members of staff and 3 interns, teamed up with Community Union, and started to put together a package of benefits for those who sign up to our forthcoming digital trade union. (Full details of this very soon.)

Part of this means that, as of June 1st, you’ll need to become a 'member' of indycube if you want to keep using us. You’ll need to head over to our CBS sign-up form and become a member of our society - paying £1 a month will get you a share in indycube, an equal say in all important decisions within the organisation, a year’s free trial of our union membership, and access to the same prices you’ve always paid. It’s really a no-brainer!

Not sure?

If you're not sure joining is for you, before you consider upping sticks, let us make you a cuppa and listen to your thoughts. As you can imagine, losing anyone for the sake of an extra £1/month would be a bit daft, so we really don't want that to happen.

If you have a team working at indycube, you only NEED to pay £1 a month, which will cover your whole company. Of course, if individual team members want to sign up to the CBS and gain access to the benefits on offer on a personal level, they'll be more than welcome!

We’ll be campaigning on your behalf, helping to shape government policy, while giving our members a collective voice and a platform for positive change, and we want you to join us.

Those who sign-up to our CBS by June 1st will get to trial the benefits of union membership. As part of our attempt to ‘level the playing field’ for freelancers and the self-employed across the UK, we’ll be including:

  • Dispute resolution and legal support
  • Invoice factoring
  • Member profiles on our website
  • Discounted rates on selected insurance services and associate retailers
  • and loads more, to be confirmed at our upcoming launches...

There’s no gimmick, and no hidden agenda - these are just some plain and simple things that will make working as a single person or small business significantly less precarious. From June 1st, signing up for membership of this union will cost just £10 a month, and will include the cost of normal indycube society membership. As with the society membership it will be open to those within and outside our network. Safe to say, this is likely to be the best value £10 a freelancer, homeworker or gigger is ever likely to pay. We’re hoping to bring some certainty to the very uncertain world of freelance work.
Join our community now.

Once we’ve officially launched on June 1st, we’ll be hosting several interactive events and open days across the UK. More information on that to follow.
