What is your advice about? Union reps

1: Join a union as soon as possible. Join the union with the most members in your school if you have no strong feelings about which union to join.

2: Go to your union rep to get advice and/or support as soon as possible. Do not wait for things to get serious.

3: Remember that being a union rep is at times stressful and time consuming. Your issue will not always be at the top of a rep’s priority list.

4: Attend union meetings as much as you can. Get to know the people you may depend on for support at some point in the future.

5: Union reps can only do so much. The strength of a union group comes from the unity and mutual support of its members.

  1. Absolutely right; I’ve been a PCS union rep for about 15 years and the last 5 years have been the toughest; it coincides with a Tory government wanting to destroy all trade union opposition to their nasty policies.
