advantages of union membership

straight from the horse's mouth - or boards.ie
this kinda says it all
I work in a company where we have 4 other branches throughout Ireland. Last May they informed us that they where introducing a 10% pay cut throughout the whole group. However we in the Dublin branch have learned that at least 1 of the other branche have not taken the pay cut as they are all in a Union(no other branch is).
I have read somewhere that they cannot bring in the pay cut unless it is in every branch. (Like Tesco making 1 shop take a pay cut!!!!)
Are they allowed do this to us????
