join a trade union
Being a member of a Trade Union brings many benefits. Unions
help thousands of people at work every day.
Unions help to create and keep safe workplaces as well as negotiate
better pay and conditions. They support employees in the workplace,
facilitating progression through training and development, whilst
ensuring they are treated fairly and their views taken into
account. Trade Unions always defend employee rights. Unions are all
about partnership and encouraging workers and employers to work
together for the benefit of all.
For some jobs, there is a natural choice of which Union to join,
but that is not always the case. The following links will give you
more information on how to join one of the Unions we currently act
Unite - the
Union of Shop, Distributive and Allied
Communication Workers Union
Royal College of Nursing
If none of these Unions are right for you and your job, please
