I haven't been a union member since I was a student. However, I'm reconsidering this as the company appears to be taking an agressive approach to negotiations for our next enterprise agreement. I'm generally in favour of the idea of uniting to get good conditions. However, it seems a lot of money to pay an organisation that is basically invisible at our workplace, who seem to have overlooked some disadvantages to penalties in past negotiations and anecdotally haven't been helpful advocates for some of my colleagues in decades gone by. Where do you stand?
