It astonishes me that other people don't see things the way I see them.
We have approximately 9 millions union members in the UK a powerful force which could be capable of resisting any attempt to attack us. Yet these 9 million powerful people belong to a plethora of TUs which, more often than not, spend a lot of their time competing with each other.
It is amazing for example to find 4 different unions competing for members in an organisation employing 4,000 people. Just think how powerful a TU rep would be if she or he knew that they were the reps of the one powerful union. Is it time to consider merging unions who can represent members with one specific employer? The employer side is already trying to bring different concepts into the way they organise the workplace to divide us even more, like introducing academies and co operative Councils, Lets respond by uniting?
