Training session a complete success!


I have been working with a group of ULRs in my region to run a training course. The ULRs have run this course for three years now but they have never been confident in taking it further and trying to get more active members in the regions.

I delivered a short “Organising” session where I led a discussion about what a trade union does and the different roles that members can get involved in (and what those roles include). I was extremely pleased that we had great success – at the end of the session we had recruited:
1 x School Contact
2x Union Learning Rep
1x Student Rep
1 x Health & Safety Rep
1 x  Potential new branch secretary

So thats it…. proof that ORGANISING WORKS!
