Getting Started in UNISON Training Courses

The Branch often gets requests for short informal learning and training courses aimed at the following types of people:

  • Contacts and activists who come forward during organising campaigns
  • Workplace and ‘postbox’ contacts
  • Reps and Officers who have just been elected but who haven’t yet taken their formal training
  • Staff members who are new to UNISON

We are planning to run pilots of Getting Started in UNISON on Saturday 26 May and Tuesday 19 June at the UNISON North West Office, Arena Point, near Victoria Station, in Manchester from 10.30 to 3pm.

The basic aims are to give members an introduction to:

  • UNISON’s organising ethos
  • Information about UNISONdirect, our national and regional websites, branch structures and other information sources
  • Development and Support mechanisms for reps and staff in UNISON

If you or someone you know may be interested in an informal and useful day of Getting Started in UNISON, then please contact the Branch on 0161 254 7500 or email
