Recognition agreements

Anyone can join a trade union, and you don’t have to be in a recognised workplace to receive the benefits and support of union membership.

However, having a recognition agreement allows a union to bargain on behalf of employees on things like pay and terms and conditions. It can also make the union stronger in the workplace as union Reps would be entitled to time off to complete their duties.

Did you know? Workplaces where unions are recognised have on average 8% higher pay than those workplaces where there is no union recognition.
