Would you believe it? People support the need for unions!

27 Sep 2010, By

You wouldn’t think it reading much of the coverage of unions provided by most of the media – but a new Harris Interactive poll for Metro has revealed support amongst the public for unions.

In the poll, four out of five people belived that there was still a role for unions and three out of five believed that every workplace should have union representation.

There was mixed news on the union response to the cuts – almost a third felt that unions were right to be talking about taking joint industrial action against the cuts but just over a third were against it. Whether and how this will change when the public starts to actually experience the cuts remains to be seen.
