This manual provides practical advice for trade union workplace reps on issues they are likely to encounter in dealing with a range of problems that can arise in the workplace.
It will be of use not only to stewards but also to anyone who represents, advises or supports members in the workplace, including learning, equality, green and health and safety representatives.
The book is an A4 size, 208-page single volume softback. The text deals with all major issues at work. Sections cover: the role of the rep; representing members; and employment rights.
Extensive checklists, case studies and web resources provide further reference material. The emphasis is on dealing with issues before they become real problems, and following best practice in negotiating and organising to build union strength.
Every rep will find The TUC Workplace Manual invaluable, and every rep will appreciate the wealth of practical advice and knowledge in this book.
'Trade union reps are the unsung heroes of Britain's workplaces, advising millions of union members, and volunteering their time and energy for free simply to help and support their work colleagues.'
