Your child has just finished school or completed their studies. Interview after interview he or she tackled the process of finding a job and in this way took one of the biggest steps on their career journey.
Your child is now ready to soar, but make sure that Solidarity is there to catch them if something should go wrong in the workplace. You as parent know from experience that it won’t be moonshine and roses from now on.
The workplace is a new environment for your child. There are many unknown factors and together with his or her first job comes a lot of decisions and responsibility. Therefore, help your child by ensuring that they are not alone in the workplace. Solidarity takes the young person’s hand and makes sure that he or she does not become a victim of bullies in the workplace.
Your child does not have to sign their life away with their first service contract. Let Solidarity give them peace of mind when taking that first step. Solidarity is merely a phone call away if your child has any labour related enquiries. With the biggest legal division of all trade unions in South Africa, Solidarity will be firmly behind your child when he or she takes their first step in the workplace.
Job protection is essential to anyone just starting with their job. Solidarity makes sure that members receive the necessary assistance to do their job, and protect their income, because your work is our work!
