Why Join


Although the main role of the union is to maintain and improve the wage rates and working conditions of union members we also recognise the need to offer our members benefits to enable them to fully accommodate the cost of being a union member.  So along with representing members both in the workplace and, if necessary in courts of law we also constantly strive to provide our members with benefits that they can use with a view to offsetting the cost of their membership.
