Skills for Strength 2020 Resources

Skills for Strength 2020 took place on Saturday 14 March 2020. More activists registered for a ticket for UNISON North West's annual Organising Convention than ever before. Despite the difficult circumstances relating to the coronavirus pandemic, an inspiring day of workshops and speeches were enjoyed by around 100 activists from across the region. We're keen that as many of the presentations and resources from the day as possible are made available online. This feels particularly important this year because some activists who registered were prevented from attending by the public health crisis we are currently facing. So please download, use and share these resources, then get out into your workplaces and organise!
