Equality reps promote fairness in the workplace by
This essential course will train equality reps in their new role and help them get to grips with the new and changing equality agenda. We will cover how you can raise awareness of the equality issues at work, build your knowledge of relevant legislation, and develop your understanding of equality within your union.
This course is for existing, new or potential equality reps. You may be an experienced workplace rep looking to update your knowledge, or a new rep who wants to take on this responsibility.
This is a 3 day course that will run on 14, 21 and 28 November 2019
There are no course fees for union reps from TUC affiliated unions.
Union representatives who would like to attend TUC courses during working time should first ask their employer for time off, with pay.
Under the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 and the Safety Representatives and Safety Committee Regulations 1977, recognised union representatives, and safety representatives have a legal right to reasonable time off with pay to attend courses approved by the TUC or their trade union.
Guidance towards establishing what constitutes reasonable time off can be found in the ACAS Code of Practice (pdf).
Union Representatives who find difficulty in obtaining paid time off to attend courses should seek assistance from their senior union representative or a full time union officer.
