This website has been set up to give people a choice if they are not happy with their union. You can download information about how to get rid of your union, or how to form your own union.
This site was set up several years ago as slightly less formal resource. We have recently changed hands because the people running the old site did not have the time or money to carry on with the effort. We have joined more directly to LabourTalk and while most of us here and at LabourTalk don’t think unions are a good thing, we know that for a lot of people, they are important and for others, not so much.
What Are We?
We are trying to provide a middle of the road solution. LabourStart is too pro-union and LabourWatch is too complicated. We want your help and are really encouraging you to take part in building this site.
This website is again being changed and modified almost daily so if you are printing its contents and working from them make sure to check back and see if anything has changed. As an example, we received feedback that when having the first few meetings about forming your own union you were required to keep minutes, but that is apparently not true. Minutes are only required when you are actually setting up the Constitution and By-laws of your new union. The “is there any interest?” meetings can be informal and need not be documented.
If you have any other questions about the process you can send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
