Aegis the Union

Aegis looks after workers rights at work in the Finance Industry where we have a recognition agreement with the employer's. We help you get the rewards, respect and recognition at work that you deserve. Visit our services page to find out about the services we offer our members. Our long term strategy is to expand but to grow carefully within the finance industry.

Auto-enrolment Scheme at the TUC Conference 2017:

Auto-enrolment scheme is due for a review this year and as Aegis, we support its expansion in favour of the part-time workers who hold multiple jobs but currently don't qualify for auto-enrolment. Watch below Fiona Steele's address to the Congress in Brighton regarding the current situation of the scheme and why expansion is necessary for equality among all workers.

Brian McDaid gave a speech on impact of workers' rights in the finance sector and building confidence.

Frequently Asked Questions

Well, we negotiate your pay and your working conditions to start with. We provide legal cover, and ensure you work in a safe and healthy environment. If you find yourself in a tricky situation at work, we'll represent you at any grievance and disciplinary hearing.

That's fine. That's not what Aegis is here for. In the very unlikely event of something so dramatic happening here that we felt strike action appropriate, every option is explored very thoroughly first. Striking is usually a last resort and only after obtaining your consent through an independently administered ballot - you can’t be forced into it.

What if you're too close to the problem to handle it yourself? By joining Aegis you get the services of a trained union official with access to a range of information, experience, advice and support from the union that you as an individual or a colleague just wouldn't have.

Can you afford NOT to be a member? What would happen in the event of an accident, or if you had a problem at work? You insure your house, your car, your life ... Why not make sure you’re covered for help at work? We refer many members to our lawyers for expert help every year. It could be you next.
