3. Won’t joining the trade union damage my career prospects?

  • Not at all; remember Joseph Pereira, retired Deputy Principal, was one of the most active members of WIGUT and was president of the union several times.
  • Trade union membership is a legal right and WIGUT is a recognised union.
  • As  WIGUT offers protection in the workplace, not joining is far more likely to damage your future career if something does go wrong.
