Frequently Asked Questions

Well, we negotiate your pay and your working conditions to start with. We provide legal cover, and ensure you work in a safe and healthy environment. If you find yourself in a tricky situation at work, we'll represent you at any grievance and disciplinary hearing.

That's fine. That's not what Aegis is here for. In the very unlikely event of something so dramatic happening here that we felt strike action appropriate, every option is explored very thoroughly first. Striking is usually a last resort and only after obtaining your consent through an independently administered ballot - you can’t be forced into it.

What if you're too close to the problem to handle it yourself? By joining Aegis you get the services of a trained union official with access to a range of information, experience, advice and support from the union that you as an individual or a colleague just wouldn't have.

Can you afford NOT to be a member? What would happen in the event of an accident, or if you had a problem at work? You insure your house, your car, your life ... Why not make sure you’re covered for help at work? We refer many members to our lawyers for expert help every year. It could be you next.
