Are Unions worth it?


Well-Known Member
With one of us facing redundancy this week, we're thinking that perhaps the remaining 3 should join the GPM sector of the Unite union (needs to be 3 union members within the business before they recognise it). Do we have any members of unions? are they worth the £12p/m?
In your situation, a union would be able to do nothing more than make sure that the redundancy process is conducted fairly in terms of your employer's statutory obligations and I'm pretty sure there are organisations that will address any concerns you might have without charge.
