    Know there are a few, unison, GMB etc.

    Haven't been part of a union before but starting in a special / complex needs school and have been strongly advised to join one, just not sure which?

    Hi greasychipbuttie, congratulations on the new job. Yes, you definitely need to be in a union. I'm in Unison, but I think they're all much the same. I would wait until you start the new job and then find out which one most of the staff are with and go for that one. Good luck!
