Because they need the union as much as the union needs them.
Why do you think RM pays out millions for full time release reps?
Hermes makes 30 million profit.

Can they also stop the deductions for tax and national insurance contributions as well, cause I'm sure I'm paying far too much tax

Never considered that... Well done ... Certainly made a Statement of Intent. A few of us used to get up and walk out when they used to put on the RMTV Bullshit though.

Thing is, in a WTLL session they're paying you to sit there and listen. Of course we don't want to sit and listen to it, but if you'd rather replace that with real work then go for it...
I think walking out on these 'Ambassadors' is not a good move. It's disrespectful and it will get back to higher management. It would be much better to come up with constructive and clever questions to flummox them.
Yes I know they're being direspectful towards us, but in these instances I think it's better to be the 'bigger man' so to speak.
