Scene: The Voice Membership Department
The phone rings. It’s a non-member in a state of distress: “I’m in trouble at work. Can I join?”
It’s frustrating that so often union membership isn’t seen as insurance against possible future problems. As we often say, you can’t insure your car and claim after you’ve crashed. You can’t insure your house and make a claim for flood damage after it’s flooded.
So, if you’re not a member, don’t wait until it’s too late to join!
