TUC Education trains union reps to work with union members and officers to make a difference in their workplace.
Here at Middlesbrough College, we offer two TUC Education training courses: Union Reps and Health & Safety. Our training enhances your skills and refreshes your knowledge.
Find out what it means to be a union rep, how to represent our members effectively and how to take up both collective and individual issues with your employer. You will also think about the future and how to influence where it is taking you and those you represent.
The course helps union representatives to understand their role and responsibilities as a rep. They include working together with members and other union reps; talking to members and dealing with their problems; recruiting members and getting them involved in the union; meeting management to discuss a range of issues at work and keeping members informed about wider union concerns.
Health and Safety
Health and Safety at work is always a major issue for all employees. Work places that have trade union health and safety reps have a significantly lower rate of accidents.
If you are a newly appointed safety rep, this is the course for you.
