Campaigning might seem scary, but it’s a skill everyone can learn, and is vital for reps and activists. Whatever the level of union organisation or recognition, this session will help you:


  • Learn leadership skills and gain confidence as an organiser.
  • Learn how to develop and apply a winning campaign strategy
  • Increase your power to influence management, with or without union recognition
  • Raise the union profile and thereby recruit.
