a) Wikimedia UK does have anything to say about unions its employees
are free to join a union
b) In france , belgium , the netherlands , germany, scandianavian
countries, austria even swtizerland any worker (wage earning) is free
to join a labourunion and about 80% of private sector workers are
syndicated , public servants are even over 90% syndicated
I would expect an organisation like Wikimedia to have an employee
representation of a bout 1 representative for each 50 staff , that they
are not represented on the board by a board-member is not a concern as
long as there is a formal consultation and participatory platform at HR
level where staff is represented in matters related to employment ,
working standards and practises, health and safety and where the board
can liaise with staff

Arguably, the employees have a bigger stake in
the Wikimedia Foundation,
they are not even represented.
Then they should unionise?
Following the arguments that unions would would not fit, does Wikimedia
UK allow unions? And other chapters with staff?
