Regarding labour unions

Post by ogiv » Tue Nov 24, 2020 10:30 am

Hello, what is your opinion on joining a labour union?

In case you are enrolled with an union, what benefits do you have?

Do I need to formally inform my employer that I am part of a union?

Finally, in your opinion, what is the best labour union for a person working in IT?

Thanks in advance for your responses.

Varies by union. See, for example:

Thanks betelgeuse for your response.

Request others who are currently members of a trade or labour union to specify the benefits that they get from being a member.

Also, if you are from IT or know about IT, what is the best trade union, in your opinion?

I am also going through the link given by betelgeuse and the below links, but it would be great to hear someone's opinions on trade unions on this forum. :)
