    I am trying to stop my head exploding with conflicting information regarding "protected action"

    My firm is going on strike next week, I am a member of ASLEF, who are not on strike.
    The RMT have balloted their members and are holding a legal 24hr strike.

    I cannot even contemplate crossing the picket line, it just isn't going to happen.

    As an ASLEF member, am I protected against dismissal, or is this only the case if I am not in any union?

    Would it be a good idea to join the RMT as well?

    According to ASLEF, I am protected, but the more I talk to people and the more I read on the net(!) the more I am beginning to wonder.

    Thank you for any advice

    Hopefully ASLEF would know best.

    Hello @Overspeed, you'll probably get a better response if you ask a mod to move this to 'education and employment'.
