Makes sense for unions to merge and of course Unite and Unison are the creations of large mergers. The reason why we have to moves that way is an obvious one. Fewer workers want to join and those who do should be catered by specialist organisations so I would argue that it will be more healthy to have one public sector union and a few others representing those in the private sector. Having too many unions competing for the small number of potential members does not make sense!
