Pressure in the Workplace

I feel under extreme pressure in the workplace.  My colleagues want us to join the Education Union so we can make a new enterprise agreement with the school.  My colleagues want improved work conditions and the union wont represent them unless the whole staff sign up.

I am not a huge fan of the unions.  I don’t like what they do with the money they have, such as splurge on campaign donations.  I don’t like the unfair rule that staff who have paid their fees will not get full representation from them unless they get their colleagues to do the same.  I hate the lack of scrutiny they have for current Government legislation because of their political leanings.

Yet, I am faced with a conundrum.  Do I give into the pressure and pay the thousand dollars a year membership fees, or do I stand my ground?  I do feel conditions aren’t up to standard.  I do want my colleagues to be well served and looked after.

Would not joining the union be selfish?

    There is nothing selfish in doing what is right. Think of why you teach. Stand up against what is wrong in government education. I am not a teacher, but I have friends and family who are. The teachers union are all about themselves, not the students. Stand your ground, you know in your heart what you need to do.

    That’s a hard thing to decide on. I would say think about it hard before you do anything. Good luck
