Apparently, workers whose employment has been dully confirmed by the unionized industries stated above, are considered bonafide members of the Union. 

He or she is required to remit 4% of his or her basic salary to the union monthly as check –off -dues. The workers in this category are called political members.

On the other hand, there are a handful of paid staffs or career officers in the Union who are employed by the organization for administrative duties.

The Union pays the salaries and allowances of the career officers from the check-off dues .i.e. the cumulative 4% basic salary.

The career officers are full time officers and members of the union whose jobs are to protect the interest and thus improve or sustain the welfare of the political members.

What a cowardly response from Dominic Raab.

Instead of telling me why Health Ministers are buying rubber gloves from Malaysian factories using forced labour, he pretty much said these gloves were so important to the UK, it doesn’t matter if they were made by slaves.
