Organising Steward (day 6)

Friday 28 June 2019

UNISON Belfast

UNISON stewards are the most important link between members in the workplace, their employer and the wider union.  This six day course is for new stewards to give you the knowledge and skills to support members locally and take on issues in your workplace.   New stewards get paid time to attend (where a facility agreement exists with the employer).  The course is accredited by SERC and will be delivered by a SERC tutor.

Future sessions for this course will take place
