Module 3 – Organising your workplace

This module is focussed on organising your workplace and developing your skills as a rep to become more effective.

The main purpose of this course is to help reps know their workplace and the members/non members within it.

This course is designed for representatives who have already completed the Module 1 – Union reps course or its equivalent, and who have had subsequent experience.

The focus of your Module 1 training was on your own workplace, and the skills and knowledge needed to meet your initial training needs as a new union rep. The Module 3 course maintains the focus on your role as an elected workplace union rep. It is also designed to use your experience to step back and look at the bigger picture of what it means to be a union representative.

This course will help you:

  • build a broad perspective of where you fit in the scheme of things
  • build understanding of effective representation and participation, and the ability to organise and plan for it
  • build confidence in researching and using rights at work
  • prepare for/facilitate progression to advanced work on union issues
