The Organising Steward

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 Steward
  • Organising
  • Unison structure
  • Representing members


Due to the Covid Pandemic the courses are currently being run in online virtual classrooms. The courses are 1 day a week for 6 weeks.

We will be returning to face to face learning when it is safe to do so.

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. 

If you have not been allocated a mentor then you need to speak to your Branch Education Organiser or Branch Secretary.
