The Retail Book Association is an independent , democratic Trade Union, whose only purpose is to look after the employment interests of its members.
Anyone can be a union member, in any walk of life, and no worker can be made to attend a formal grievance or disciplinary interview without the benefit of Union representation.
The RBA has thousands of members, management and staff, mainly from within Retail employment. It is controlled by its members via elected Representatives and Officials and managed on a day to day basis by a full time President elected from the membership, David Pickles.
The Union also employs professional staff and Officers, who, like David, work from RBA Central Office.
They are available twelve hours a day, seven days a week, by calling their direct lines (David – 07836 295287; or Paul – 07770 364760); and are well able to advise and assist members on all employment related matters.
The RBA is excellent in ensuring that no member stands alone when faced with a problem at work.
It also recovers hundreds of thousands of pounds in damages for those members unfortunate to have an accident, all at no cost to the member.
To provide this service does require finance, and this comes from members’ subscriptions, which range from £3.60 to a maximum of £11.70 per month, depending upon salary and the level of service provided.
