Yorkshire trade union membership up
Trade union membership in the Yorkshire region has grown for the second successive year, new government figures show.
The number of members grew by 21,000 to 596,000 last year following a rise of 16,000 the year before, according to the Office of National Statistics.
Neil Foster, Yorkshire TUC policy and campaigns officer, said: “These new figures show that more and more people across Yorkshire value what trade unions offer. In a tough economic climate people want fair pay, decent training and someone their side.”
