This course is only available to UNISON members.

Organising Steward Stage 1

“UNISON stewards are the most important link between members in the workplace, their employer and the wider union. This 7-day course is for new stewards to give you the knowledge and skills to support members locally and take on issues in your workplace.

The first 4 days (Stage 1) are about who we are and where we are going; your place in UNISON, organising and meeting your members.

The next 3 days (Stage 2) is representation skills, addressing disciplinary and grievances. This course is run in 2 sections (Stage 1 is 4 days and Stage 2 is 3 days)

New stewards get paid time to attend (where a facility agreement exists with the employer).

Tutor: Pamela Dooley
