Are there things you would like to improve about your workplace?
Are you the only union member in your workplace?
Would you like others to join?
This summer the IWW has launched the YOUR JOB, YOUR UNION campaign to help you address those very issues!
YOUR JOB, YOUR UNION provides you with advice, training and support from experienced organisers to help you take the first steps towards recruiting other members and having a union presence in your workplace.
From feeling isolated as the only union member in your workplace, to building a core of members into a team, and winning improvements to your terms and conditions of work, there will be someone on hand to help you out every step of the way.
The sort of things you might aim to win at first are:
Having your contracts issued
An improvement to your break facilities
Resolving a health and safety matter
Gaining clarity in your payslips
YOUR JOB, YOUR UNION will teach you some basic tried and tested organising methods.
YOUR JOB, YOUR UNION will be at your own pace and you will be totally in control.
YOUR JOB, YOUR UNION will be the start of making your place of work better for all.
Once you have had your first success there will be ongoing advice, training and support to help you to build your confidence and make further gains.
The IWW 'Your Job, Your Union' campaign video is now live on social media to be shared. It gives members the first steps towards organising a union in your workplace
