Who needs a Trade Union for Faith? | Psephizo

It comes as a surprise to many that clergy can be members of a Trades Union.

I joined after a problem with the bishop and since then have twice used the Union to sort out a problem. Both went my way but I know I got a black mark.

This article sets out the case for clergy being in a union. It also, by implication, implies that clergy, especially in the Church of England, need to be employed, rather than office holders so they have proper employment rights (and duties).
