What is a trade union?

"When a group of workers act and speak together, their employer has to listen. Thats how unions make things better at work." -Trades Union Congress (TUC)

Unions are groups of workers organised together to win a better deal at work. In Prospect, we have formed groups of members who get together to talk about what’s going on in their workplaces and industries. Our members discuss and negotiate on issues like pay, pensions, equalities, safety at work, unfair treatment, or the way work is organised and managed.

What is Collective Bargaining?

We can all achieve more together than we can alone. When working people band together, they’re much more likely to get decent wages and be treated well at work. Collective bargaining is the official process by which trade unions negotiate with employers, on behalf of their members. The basic principle of collective bargaining is that we negotiate on issues as a block, the more of us that are working together the stronger our voice and the more we are listened to. The more members we have the louder the voice.

Young Workers' Network.

Prospect Sellafield Ltd Branch have an active young workers network to give all members under 35 an opportunity to raise issues, suggest improvements, or get support for any improvements or campaigning they would like to tackle. There are also opportunities for personal development (both locally and nationally) and dedicated skills sessions on topics that matter to the network.
