    Voice the Union

    I know there are a few Voice members here. I've just noticed that the union is now recognised by the inland revenue, so you can claim tax relief on the subs.

    Is it only that union or are others recognised in this way also?

    How could I find out/How did you find out?

    I thought that tax relief was only applicable if a condition of service was that you had to be a member of a union i.e. Teachers, lecturers, (there may be more). As Support Staff are not required to be union members this would not apply, even if the IR recognised the union.
