Trade Unions - dealing with change
A UNISON case study

Page 1: Introduction

'Trade unions? Just groups of men who shout a lot and call strikes. They're dinosaurs, unwilling and unable to respond to a changing world. They're finished.'

Is that your view of trade unions? Really? And you don't know of trade unions with more women members than men? So:

  • Where has your knowledge and view of trade unions come from?
  • If unions really are dinosaurs, why are they still so prominent in a changing world of work?

This case study looks at how trade unions:

  • still play a vital role in promoting fairness in the workplace
  • achieve big improvements in the lives of working women.
