The Government is currently seeking to get its ‘Trade Union Bill’ through Parliament.
Amongst the changes the Government wants to make is to stop giving public sector workers the choice of paying union subscriptions through payroll. This is sometimes called ‘check-off’ or paying through your wages.
The Trade Union Bill is intended to pave the way for future cuts and privatisation of essential public services, and silence the opposition of working people and their trade unions.
You can help keep your union strong by asking your workmates to switch too. If you can distribute materials to your colleagues and encourage them to switch then you could be a UNISON Switch Champion - please enter your details below and we'll be in touch.
