Access to training
Stewards, health and safety reps, union learning reps and branch officers have a right to paid time off for training in their union duties in most workplaces. This also applies to part-time activists and those who take part in online courses.
It is best to give several weeks notice to employers and to provide managers with information about the course as required.
If you or your branch are experiencing difficulties in obtaining time off for union training, contact your region.
