Together is a new union set up to offer a new type of union membership to people who cannot join an existing union.
Membership of Together is intentionally set a low rate of $1 per week. “These people face many of the same issues as people who work in bigger, unionised industries, but don’t have the same support available to them. Together will provide support and advice when they need help with workplace issues - like bullying, sick leave, holiday pay, employment agreements or sexual harassment - and it will join them to the wider union movement” says CTU President Helen Kelly.
As a PPTA member you can take advantage of your existing PPTA membership and offer membership of Together to any of your whanau (or, indeed, anyone who you think would benefit from it) who can’t get access to a union in their current workplace. And together we can build the strength of the union movement in Aotearoa.
