    Trade Union Membership

    This authority, as your employer, supports the system of collective bargaining and believes in the principle of avoiding industrial relations problems by discussion and agreement. For practical purposes this can only be conducted by representatives of the employers and of the employees. If collective bargaining of this kind is to continue and improve for the benefit of both, it is essential that the employees’ organisations should be fully representative.

    Your authority is associated with other local authorities represented on the national and provincial councils dealing with local authorities’ services. It is equally sensible for you to be in a membership of a trade union representing you on the appropriate negotiating body and you are encouraged to do so.
