1. Why should I join if I get all the benefits anyway?

  • Actually you DON'T get all the benefits. Only fully paid-up members have access to union advice, representation and other non-salary benefits.
  • While non-union staff get the benefits won by WIGUT by negotiation, they do not get an opportunity to have input into any debate on the issues being negotiated.
  • The union’s bargaining achievements are based on its membership strength, so the more people who join, the more the union can achieve for you.
