A union or association is well placed to support their members. In general, a union does a good job at supporting their members. However, sometimes the interests of an individual employee and the wider membership do not align. For example, if an allegation is of a sensitive nature or is the subject of public scrutiny, a union may feel pressure from the wider membership who are concerned at the impact on the reputation of their profession. Sometimes what is important to an individual employee is not as important to a union and his can influence the level of support that this provided. A union can be put in the difficult position of balancing the interests of the individual employee against the views of the wider membership. However, the employee is still entitled to a fair process and outcome.
