A Trade Union’s negotiating leverage is determined by the support of its members. The more unionised a work place is, the stronger the Trade Union becomes and more effective it will be in negotiating enhanced benefits for its membership. Conversely, the less unionised the work place is the more likely pay, terms and conditions are eroded in pursuit of endless cost cutting and increased productivity.

Our aim is to achieve a work place that is 100% unionised. This will enable us to get the best terms and conditions and provide the advice and support you need on matters related to your job.

Membership subscription fees are set by the Unite Executive Council annually and represent a small percentage of the employees annual salary. The financial benefits membership provides far outweigh the cost of membership and rewards are recognised in pay, enhanced working agreements and additional allowances.

Unfortunately TGU is not able to provide retrospective representation, therefore we are unable to offer support or advice to crew members who attempt to join the union after an incident.

Together we’re stronger.
