Join a union

All workers have the right to join a union if they so choose.

It is in your best interest to join one as research has shown that members within unionised workplaces receive better pay, conditions and benefits.

Therefore, joining a union is the best decision you can ever make as a worker!

Which Union Should I Join?

Different sectors of work & vocation can have particular Trade Unions e.g. the "FBU" aka "The Fire Brigades Union" kind of speaks for itself in terms of a descriptive name! Other Trade Unions are more general & wider in scope, such as GMB or UNITE the Union.

The "There is a Better Way" campaign run by the STUC has a handy form you can fill in here which can guide you as to which Union is best suited to your line of work.

 

List of Trade Unions

A list of British Trade Unions can be found here on the main TUC website: http://www.tuc.org.uk/britains-unions

Some Trade Unions are Britain-wide but have a special Scottish district or offices, whereas some others operate almost entirely within Scotland itself such as the Education Union the EIS.
