Overview

Join trade union organisers and reps from across the region as we discuss how we think strategically to build union membership and density. 

Hear from national trade union speakers about the challenge facing the movement as well as some of the tools available to support union organising.

The conference will also hear from Labour about the aspects of their New Deal that will help remove some of the existing barriers we face in organising.

The conference will hold a series of workshops looking at

* Private sector: How do we target sectors and resources to win.
This workshop will hear from both GMB Coventry Amazon reps about their inspirational organising campaign to secure a union at Amazon and Unite organisers and reps about their long and ultimately successful battel for recognition at DHL East Midlands Airport
 

* Public Sector: How do we get back above 50% density
This workshop will hear from Unison organisers and reps about how they've built union membership and activism amongst outsourced NHS workers in response to a refusal to honour the national pay award in full.

* Diversifying our reps base
This workshop will explore how we support and encourage black members to take on leadership roles within our unions to ensure that all our structures look and reflect our true membership. The discussion will be led by the TUC's Building BAME Networks project officer, Rebecca Sixsmith-Hughes, and participants from current Black Activist programmes.

The day will conclude with a plenary session and a presentation on how the TUC's Solidarity Hub can support unions in their organising activity.
