Why I joined Unison

Steward and Tree Protection Officer, Michael Volp, tells us why he joined Unison and why he continues to be a member:

"In the early days of my career I started out 'on the tools' and Union membership [NUPE as was] was as natural as getting your hands dirty.

The union has always been instrumental in ensuring fair terms and conditions as well as negotiating fair wages and salaries, so my continued Union membership goes without saying; and I personally received free Legal help through Unison a few years ago whilst in my current employment in relation to a work related accident."
