Hi all, There are loads of unions out there - and it's great when they're all free to an NQT because you can lap up the benefits of all of them. I mentioned with union I was with to a member of SLT (mentor meeting, union offered me free training course - the school can afford that for me!) and got a "you're with THEM?!" sort of response. It made me wonder - what image to the unions have in the business? Is one considered THE union and other pretend unions? What's the deal? What do you consider when you choose a union? Someone once said to me "just pick the one most people are in at school" but that just seems lazy. You don't buy the same car insurance as everyone else in the staffroom so why do that with a union?
