If you are a “minister of religion”, if you work for a faith body (in a synagogue/mosque/church/faith group’s head office) or you work for a faith-based charity, Unite is here for you. The faith workers’ branch is here to represent you: we have the expertise to offer you good support.
Workers for faith organisations all too often suffer as a result of the strains of working life, which can easily impact upon the family. Long hours, difficult relationships with people, organisational restructuring and a host of other issues are as real for faith workers as anyone in the working world. This goes for ministers and lay workers alike. New approaches to managing people and theories of ‘human resource management’ can have dramatic consequences. Organisations are restructured and new lines of accountability introduced. Without advice and good representation, one can be in trouble. Find out more about the branch's work here.
