Revamped Delegate Training

By nzdwu on December 18, 2013 in NZDWU News

In line with our Union’s restructure, which is aimed at improving services to members and delegates, we have realigned training for delegates.

We now have:

  • An introductory course for new delegates covering DWU history and structures, along with modules covering representation of workers and disciplinaries.
  • An advanced course for experienced delegates covering in more depth workers history and representation along with the history and politics of trade unionism and the working class.

We have also developed a one day course for delegates involved in collective bargaining as negotiators and are looking at more specific courses as needs arise – i.e Health & Safety, Drug & Alcohol etc. We have also just started producing certificates that recognise course completion, so if any delegates who have attended training in the past would like one, please email [email protected].
