In many unionised employments, trade unions have successfully negotiated better redundancy settlements for their members. Click here for more information. (Optional link).
Where there is the possibility of a redundancy, short-time or lay-off situation occurring in your workplace, you should consult immediately with your trade union who will make you aware of your entitlements and any other implications. They will also be able to provide you with accurate information and advice on your situation.
