Voice's Core Values
The strength of negotiation
At Voice, we believe in the power of negotiation to protect the interests of our members - who never resort to industrial action.
Truly independent union
Our independence from the TUC and non-affiliation to any political party means our thoughts and actions are dedicated to our members
Supporting children, Protecting ourselves
We're responsible for the children we educate and care for, and it's essential that we support them alongside protecting ourselves.
Every member is unique
All of our members are professionals fulfilling an important role in education, early years and childcare, so it's important that we provide a dedicated and personal service, and strive for quality in everything we do.
