I'm in. Same as most others, as an insurance policy against if something bad goes down. Apart from that I think they are a bit useless, mostly due to their members but that is a different story, but I can't complain as I got cheap car insurance through them when I started driving. Was chuffed. Also thinking about it I think it is one of those things you get more if you really get into it and find oppourtunities. Was giving a pack about a UNISON conference, not my cup of tea but thinking about it if you like that thing you get your hotel and food paid for you just have to get there and back, not a bad deal if you like that sort of thing.
I also enjoyed my strike day but I think that scared a lot of people here, & I mean the union members, as they realised what could be done. After that they didn't seem so keen to strike, which is a bit wierd.
Thats a bit like those that try and defend themselves in court. Yes you probably can state your case but do you know all the precedents, key words and phrases or legislation that can back up your case and help you out?Quote:
why do I need someone in a room with me for a disciplinary should it arise, if I can't defend myself then there's something wrong
