Five reasons for joining TSSA

1. TSSA is committed to helping you improve your quality of life. Our trained reps work with members to help improve:

  • Wages
  • Hours of work
  • Working conditions
  • Parental and maternity provisions
  • Health and Safety
  • Pensions

All of these are, on average, better in workplaces where TSSA and other unions are recognised.

2. You have the right to be treated with fairness and respect at work. TSSA campaigns to maintain and advance your workplace rights.

3. TSSA is committed to helping you to make your employment more fulfilling. Our reps minimise the real risk of workplace injuries and help members develop new skills. We persuade employers to improve their training and development programmes and negotiate paid time off to attend courses.

4. TSSA is committed to ensuring you have a safety net if things go wrong. Our trained reps deliver representation and advice for members at discipline and grievance hearings. Our legal team has an excellent record for winning compensation for TSSA members. Over the last six years TSSA has achieved settlements totalling over £2 million for personal injury claims and over £17 million in employment claims.

5. TSSA is committed to giving you a real say in your future. As a union we strive to empower members and workplace representatives to stand up for their entitlements. We give members a real say in who represents them and a real voice in the campaign and policy decisions taken in their name.

Please note: Where a member joins after a workplace dispute has started, TSSA may or may not offer representation for internal proceedings depending on the individual circumstances and will not provide support for legal proceedings that might arise from the issues involved in that dispute. Any subsequent workplace issue will attract full access to internal representation and legal support where the case meets the standards of any policy in place for referral to our solicitors.
