I don't think I have a union

ANSWER

I was in the union when I was working. Since I'm no longer employed, I'm no longer a member. When I rejoin the workforce, I'll be steering clear of the retail union (if I work retail again). They're feckin useless.

I used to be in the union for more than 15 years but when I actually needed help they were absolutely useless so I left. I also had concerns that they were becoming more and more political which isn't their actual purpose IMHO - by political I mean getting involved in issues outside the scope of workplace rights, things like refugee rights for example. Im all for refugee rights and have been supportive of that but I don't think its the place of the union to advocate on stuff like that on behalf of its members as they all have differing political opinions.
