Normally life goes on as usual then, suddenly, you are faced with injustice (possibly arising from a grievance or Disciplinary matter), redundancy, injury or illness. Of course you could always turn to a friend or solicitor for advice but most people find that specialist guidance is what they need - guidance that can only come from those sufficiently experienced in dealing with industrial problems. That is why every union has its own legal advisors and highly trained negotiators/represenatives.
I am also a member of Unison.Santini21 wrote:I have been a member of Unison since I started as a technician 11 years ago. They have supported me on various issues e.g. dealing with our work contracts when we changed from school to academy . They are just a phone call away and support you on any problems you encounter at work. I would recommend joining a union.
