It should just be mentioned that in order to ‘fire’ someone there needs to be an investigation, the person needs to know the charge against them, they have a right to represent themselves and be accompanied by a union rep or colleague, and they then have the right of appeal. If these procedures are not followed the employer leaves themselves wide open to a claim in an industrial tribunal. I think too many employers do not know this and just apply a knee jerk reaction . In the case of artistes this is more difficult as it becomes like the McCarthy witch hunts as they are mostly self-employed.

Maureen, how many people who work in offices of large companies, belong to a union these days? My wife works in a hospital in admin and reception, and non of her colleagues bothered to join. The employers know this and they know exactly how to exploit this.
