This course is only available to UNISON members.
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.

Bullying in a work environment can cause tremendous emotional distress as well as severely impact on people’s capacity to carry out their role. Employers have a duty of care to employees and there are a number of remedies you can pursue if you believe you are being bullied. For managers it is important to ensure that staff are enabled to work in a supportive environment which maximises their ability to contribute. Sometimes there is a blurred line between performance management and a belief by the staff member that they are being bullied. This course will explore the employer’s duty of care, what constitutes bullying, what remedies are available to someone who is experiencing it and how managers can respond pro-actively.
