We all hope we can come to work and just do our jobs but sometimes, issues arise that are difficult to navigate on your own. Individual union support is about knowing that someone has your back in the workplace. Delegates and industrial officers can provide a second opinion and often have a good understanding from the workers point of view. They can help resolve issues on the spot or, if you are required to attend a meeting; be there to support you before, during and after.
