Unions are not charities and their resources are subject to the number of members they have. Strength is found in the commitment of the membership. Throughout history members have had to organise, campaign and fight for every entitlement that people sometimes take for granted. Union achievments such as sick leave, annual leave, penalty rates and public holidays weren't handed out on a platter. You're part of a collective that worked hard for those rights. We're proud but not complacent. Many of our hard-fought conditions are regularly at risk. There are many thousands of vulnerable workers in casual jobs, daily violations of occupational health and safety laws and employers trying to minimise costs at the expense of workers. So what can you do?
