As a result of unfair treatment by employers, unions, in 2004, won an estimated £16.2 million in compensation for their members at Employment Appeal Tribunals.

Unfair dismissal awards won by trade unions are over three times higher than the average in a non-union backed unfair dismissal case.

In 2007 unions won a record £330m in compensation for members through legal action. They also won £1m in
equal pay claims – an average of £15,000 per member affected
