Back to Solidarity Trade Union

You need a Union to watch your back!

Britain faces hard economic times and firms are looking to shed staff to cut costs. If they cannot make workers redundant some will manufacture disciplinary incidents at work to give them an opportunity to sack. They will also focus on performance ‘improvement’ as a means of justifying the dismissal of workers.

The Solidarity Trade Union sees it every day. You can help protect yourself from such actions by joining a union and let the employer know, subtly, that you have. It lets them know that you are not just an individual but part of something bigger. You have back-up if you need it.

One of new members John Basir said "I joined Solidarity as I could see our managers looking to find fault in everything I and my fellow workers did at work. I felt something was coming!

The union's fee of £8 per month turned out to be very good value! “

Why not follow John's example by joining the independent Solidarity Trade Union? We work hard every day to protect workers – people just like you!
