Being a member of a trade union is first and foremost a gesture of solidarity.
On a personal level, it is an act of openness towards others;
It is an act of responsibility:
- Not letting others decide for you by participating in the Delegation, the Executive Committee, the Staff Committee
- Providing your assistance, your skills for a motivating and enriching social objective.
- By supporting the collective defense of the staff and its working conditions, which is achieved through unity in action and mutual support.
Within the USL: your membership fee is our only source of funding,
-it covers our operating expenses;
-it ensures our independence from the Institutions;
-it finances our Court appeals, translations, leaflet printing, etc.
But it also means having the right to receive assistance in various fields:
-Our teams are on the front line to explain your rights to you;
-If necessary, our lawyer is at your disposal to advise you free of charge.
-Further on, financial assistance, modulated according to the level of general interest of your case.
