The Organising Steward
The Organising Steward course has been designed for newly elected and less experienced Unison stewards organising in the workplace. As a steward you are a vital link in the union chain and have an important role to play in organising members at local level. The course covers the following subjects:
- The Role of the Rep
- Unison structure
- Representing members
The courses take place over 5 days usually 1 day a week for 5 weeks or in 3 and a 2 day block at locations around the region 9.30-4:30 pm each day lunch provided.
Before you come on the Organising Steward Course however you should talk to your branch mentor about the jobs you could be doing in the workplace.
