Once you've selected the paperwork that suits your situation best, print it off and fill out the blank spaces.

It's a good idea to have at least 4 copies.
2 originals; one for the authority, one for your records.
2 copies for any supervisors that may approach you.

Write a Cover Letter

We encourage people to create cover letters that are written in their own writing, but we recognize some people don't know where to start - so you may use this sample as a guide. Please do not copy and paste - we want to ensure this isn't 'templated'.

Send by Express Post with Notice of Delivery

Make sure it gets sent to the man or woman that holds the highest responsibility within your union.

Await Correspondance

Some local unions are responding very positively, looking to work with you.

Sometimes, they are resistant. No matter what, we want to help you. Check out the Frequently Asked Questions for more.

Consider Joining the Support Group

We are constantly updating our members with the most up-to-date information and helping them with special situations, even connecting people with legal help where it's needed.

Another way to remind unions that they exist solely
to protect you, the workers.
