The ULR role involves raising awareness about the value of learning, helping organise courses in the workplace and supporting and encouraging members to take part in learning.
For more information on the rights of ULRs and union members, see the ACAS Code of Practice - Time off for trade union duties and activities.
Want to become a union learning rep (ULR)?
First discuss it with your union official (for example, branch or shop stewards committee) or your full-time officer. All ULRs are given training for their role through courses provided by TUC Education and individual unions. Take a look at the TUC Education website for training opportunities.
