Why the Workers of Wales Union is the Union for you?
The Workers of Wales Union is part of, and trading name of, the Workers of England Union operating in Wales.
Workers in Wales have been keen to have a union like the Workers of England union, which is a fully independent trade union which anyone can join, who’s aim is to PROTECT its members employment rights in their chosen industry, and not affiliated to any political party.
To assist our members, and other workers in Wales, in having a fully independent trade union we have set up a Workers of Wales Union branch.
Did you know?
The Workers of Wales Union uses Representatives that are external and independent from your employer.
It makes sense doesn’t it?
‘An Employment Adviser supporting you in your time of need, that isn’t employed by your company’.
Our Representatives Knowledge and Experience
Our Representatives knowledge and experience is not restricted by only representing people in one company, in one trade, and in front of the same Managers.
Our Representatives, apart from the annual training they receive, gain a wide variety of knowledge and experience in employment law from visiting businesses and representing workers in all areas of industry, interacting with different Managers and HR departments.
Our membership is diverse and represents a cross section of Wales’ workforce. However we also believe that each member has individual needs and deserves be cared for on a personal basis, so The Workers of Wales offers on going advice on issues related to our members work life. Always feel free to call the union office for advice.
As our membership continues to grow our union we will continue to strengthen. We realise that a union needs to support its representatives and organisers. They in turn will offer the highest level of support to its members.
We offer protection and we will endeavour to solve work related problems for our members. The union’s representatives give their time on a voluntary basis to help their workmates but have on hand the unions officials for support. We also have arrangement where free legal advice can be given if required. The Workers of Wales union is here to:
