HR Strange But True!
April 18, 2002

Great Britain's spies are to get trade-union protection, even if they're not technically joining a union.

The staff association for Britain's Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), also known as MI6, is to join up with the First Division Association, the union for senior government managers, the association announced.

The SIS, which handles Britain's overseas intelligence operations, had no comment.

When people join SIS they agree not to join a union, in order to keep secret the details of their identity. The new arrangement is an affiliation that will extend union expertise to SIS staff, without union membership. Identities will remain secret.
