ERA Refresher

Event Date: 
8 May 2019 - 10:00 to 16:00


The course is designed to meet the requirements of the Employment Relations Act (ERA) recertification.   If you have been a trade union rep for more than 5 years, you must undertake this course to gain reaccreditation and retain your role in the union as a workplace rep or on seconded release.  

On the refresher course you will learn about current protocols in the union when representing members, updates in legal cases, how to organise around issues in the workplace to lessen the amount of individual casework required and identify national and local challenges impacting on branches.  It will also look at developing new skills and supporting new activists.
