Skills for strength is a convention for UNISON members in the North West Region, bringing us together with other trade unionists from across our region, country and from across the globe to share ideas, best practice and skills.

This is a practical, workshop-based event to help you win in the workplace, build our union and improve people’s working lives.

For those who missed out on tickets, come back to this page late in 2020. This is when we will open registration for Skills for Strength 2021 to all UNISON NW activists UNISON NW members who are looking to get more involved. Registration and attendance at the event is free, including lunch and refreshments, but registrants will need to claim any travel expenses incurred from their UNISON branch, with their permission.

A number of accommodation places are available for activists who are travelling a significant distance from Manchester to attend, and you can apply for one of these places as part of the registration process.
