The Union Advent: 17 Dec

Unions can help employers reduce staff turnover.

By giving employees a voice, rather than simply leaving a firm when they are unhappy at work, union reps significantly reduced the number of ‘exists’, improving labour retention and reducing absenteeism. The DTI estimated that this could result in savings to employers of between £72 and £143 million.
