- Gone home from work, distressed about how you have been treated – whether by your line manager, colleagues or customers?
- Been told off or disciplined at work unfairly?
- Had an accident at work and not known what to do next?
- Needed to know something about employment law, conditions at work, health & safety, contracts, redundancy?
What did you do?
- Complain to family and friends?
- Leave that job and go where you will be better appreciated?
- Talk to a lawyer or employment adviser?
Contact Your Union?
Doing nothing and/or complaining to your friends and family is not a good option, and leaving the job should be the very last resort.
Talking to someone is the right thing to do.
Talking to a lawyer can be expensive, and employment advisers cannot always offer useful advice precisely tailored to your particular needs.
Further, they cannot go with you to talk to your employer. A Union Representative can.
If you are a member of a Union, good for you! Use it, you pay for it!
We do not encourage any member of another Union to join the RBA, but we do believe that, if you are not a Union member, then you should join a good one, and that’s us!
We would say that, wouldn’t we?
Then again, no-one signs up for life.
If you don’t get the service you want, stop paying (tell us so first, so we get the chance to redeem ourselves!). When you do get the service you want, tell all your friends…!
We don’t promise to cure all problems, but we are dedicated and persuasive “solution providers”, and we work hard to see that you get the best chance to enjoy a rewarding and trouble-free career, wherever you work, and we ensure that you do not stand alone when you are faced with a problem.
Most importantly – we work for you!
