Your union is only as strong as its members and membership numbers enable the union to act effectively on your behalf. High membership numbers mean more influence with management and for this reason it is vitally important that as many of your colleagues as possible are members of the union. 

The CWU believes that it is crucial to a union’s success to understand that organising and recruitment are essential for the future. Only by building a strong, stable membership base can the union use its influence to represent all its members. 

For a union to truly represent the interests of its members, those members have to get involved and tell the union what is important to them and what issues are affecting them in their workplace. 

The real strength of any trade union is in its members.
