About Us

We’re TC Branding Group. We’re extremely proud to have been working with your union since 1987, and are delighted to be your Preferred Promotional Merchandise Provider.

We like to think our long & broad experience helps us to understand exactly what you need; and we really enjoy supplying you with it!

We’re very much a family-run company, and we genuinely care about people and our relationship with them – our customers, our staff, and our suppliers.

  • listen to your requirements and respond promptly
  • visit UNISON branches and regions to meet our contacts to assist with the order process and show the product range
  • get to know you and find out what’s important to you
  • supply samples for hands-on evaluation during visits
  • send quotations and explain the costs
  • create artwork for approval on all orders
  • support regional events and exhibitions.

Ethical suppliers

We really do care deeply that our products & supply chain are ethically above reproach, so we always strive to purchase from UK suppliers to help protect people’s jobs. We also establish that their employees have access to a union, or a valid staff forum, to protect their legal rights and working conditions. When we do work with overseas suppliers, we embrace the principles of the ETI (Ethical Trading Initiative) Base Code to respect workers’ rights. We also work closely with our suppliers to ensure that all of the relevant local and international laws are met. For more information please refer to our TC Branding Group website -

Recycled and eco-friendly merchandise

The UNISON eco collection is an extensive range of innovative, ethically sourced and environmentally responsible products, made from biodegradable, organic, Fairtrade, recycled and sustainable materials that don’t cost the earth.

We love supporting UNISON…

As well as this website and the creation of a 4 colour brochure every other year (along with flyers etc, when required), we also attend UNISON’s regional meetings, and internal & external exhibitions including the National Conference. At these events, having our own fully-equipped vans enables us to set up and stock an on-site shop, allowing members to try and buy even single items.

If you have any suggestions about how we can do even more to help, please do drop us a line at
