Abstract

Reports a nationwide questionnaire survey of health service and local government union and non‐union workers in the same workplace carried out by NUPE to investigate what factors are influential in the choice to join or not to join a union. Results suggest financial benefits are not an incentive and show that stewards play a pivotal role in recruitment.
