Why Paul joined Prospect

Paul Delaney, a National Trust ranger from the Lake District, joined Prospect in 2003, and has been a big trade unionist his whole life, “I come from Northern Ireland where there’s a big trade union thing going on anyway, it seemed a natural thing to do.”

The importance of joining a trade union is something that Paul encourages within his workplace at the National Trust, “I tell my colleagues, certainly our younger colleagues that trade union membership is important because it gives you a voice, it gives you an ability to influence your pay, your conditions, your health and safety.”
