All about unions
Unions are the only organisations whose sole aim is to represent and protect workers. Some of the things which we take for granted, such as paid holidays and the 8-hour day were gained through the collective strength and action of trade unions over the last 100 years or more. It is important that workers are aware of and understand the benefits of union membership in order to make an informed decision about joining one.
In today's fast paced globalised world, unions are as relevant and necessary as they were then. Unions rights and the benefits of membership is an issue for unions around the world. For a different take on what unions can do for workers click here.
