This course is only available to UNISON members.
Pathways into UNISON
UNISON relies on hundreds of local reps in workplaces across Northern Ireland. These are people who want to play a role in standing up for colleagues and the service they work for. 85% of UNISON members are women, many of whom work part time or in more than one job. However as in society, that proportion of women are not reflected in the activist base or decision making structures within branches. For women members who are interested in stepping forward and becoming a workplace rep we run an overnight residential workshop to find out how the union works and how you can become more active.
