If you’ve ever considered a career at a startup, then during your research you may have come across some horror stories from seemingly very successful businesses.
Perhaps you work for a new tech company and are finding that the free breakfasts and ping-pong table don’t make up for the long hours and insane pressure from your narcissistic CEO.
Unionise has been designed for you. Our founders are passionate about the opportunities technology and the digital universe offer to improve the lives of all those employed at startups.
Here for you
If you’ve joined a startup, or even a scaleup, and want to protect yourself then we believe that coming together with like-minded people in similar situations can help.
During the first industrial revolution huge benefits to working conditions were gained by workers forming strong, cohesive groups. Workers joined unions to protest for shorter working hours, higher rates of pay, safety at work, basic education, and healthcare.
We are now at the beginning of the fourth industrial revolution, where new technologies are fusing the physical, digital, and biological worlds.
This new revolution will present many of the same challenges that the first revolution did. The threat of automation is similar to pistons replacing human strength. With email and instant messaging services, people are expected to be “always-on”. And many junior jobs are offered as ‘internships’ for little or no pay.
