Overview

A one day training day focused on training young activists to agitate, organise and empower migrant workers in the gig, retail, hospitality and related sectors.

The theme of the training days will be developing organising skills in the new economy (so focusing on organising outside the traditional shop floor model that forms the basis of reps training).

We will use materials from TUC’s ‘talking union’ and ‘supporting exploited workers’ eNotes and study guides, LaborNotes, the TUC’s ‘Working in the UK’ guide to employment rights in 21 languages and other trade union & community organising materials.

We don't expect you to already work with migrant workers, though it’s great if you do.This is about developing your skills to build solidarity between workers from different countries in your workplace and empowering you to empower others. So whether you're a complete beginner or want a refresher, don't worry :)

We'll be providing lunch on the day, but the TUC can't cover any travel expenses, so make sure to ask your  branch (if you have one) for help with travel expenses 👍
