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].
