    Loads of threads on this. Many of us are with Voice The Union as they are non-striking and do a good job.

    It depends who you work for. Not all unions cover independent schools. Several of us independent edugeeks are in ATL

    Unison is the one of choice for support staff in our school I believe

    In Voice here, was in Unison but they were a complete waste of space and have their own agenda rather than helping the individual. The Voice I've found brilliant so far, really helpful and have reps who will fight your cause.
    Don't be fooled by Unison if they operate a closed shop in your place of employment and start bleating on about them being the only ones recognised, you can be represented by any union you choose.

    I'm Voice because I don't agree with strike action affecting support staff.

    UNISON but i've never seen or heard from a rep the whole time i've been a member, have been thinking about moving to voice as it's non-striking. Although even when unison went on strike i came in to work, need the cash and as far as i can see we still have a payfreeze so a whole lot of good the strike did
