Some questions came up on the IWW cleaners/UNISON thread about how union recognition works in the UK. So I have split the discussion here:
So as I understand it, in the UK, in a given workplace, workers can individually join any number of applicable unions, but management can choose which one it formally recognizes? And that the IWW Cleaners are not formally recognized, but still take action, which UNISON, as a formally recognized union, is annoyed by?
Sorry, I don't get this: "Well, UNISON is the recognised union and it maintain recognition regardless of membership"
