Be member

Why become a member ?

Being a member of a union means benefiting from assistance in various fields:

Participation:

  • Don't let others decide for you, take part as much as you can in the delegation, the Executive Committee, the Staff Committee or contribute your assistance and your skills towards a motivating, enriching social objective.

Legal:

  • Our team of officials are always there to explain your rights to you;
  • If necessary, our lawyer is available to you to give you free advice;
  • If the matter is taken further, financial assistance may be available depending on the interest of your case.

Social:

  • Your membership means that you are automatically a member of Patients' Rights Association.

Career:

  • USL runs training courses to prepare you for competitions, and admission to the courses is free to members.

Information: 

  • As a member, you have access to high quality, rapidly-accessible information, as well as the possibility of taking part in the meetings of our delegations, during which it is possible for you to give or receive useful information.
 
But being a member also means:
 
Solidarity: 
  • Within your service, your DG, within our institutions in Luxembourg, upholding the collective interests of the personnel also involves unity of action and mutual support.
  • Within the USL, your membership dues are our only source of funding:

    • it covers our operating expenses;
    • it ensures our independence from the institutions;
    • it finances our court cases, translations, the printing of our tracts, etc.
