Union Learner Reps (ULR) come to Barnet

Whilst we have been relatively successful in running 15 courses for staff in Environmental Services we are acutely aware that all Council staff should have the same opportunities.

This September, 10 UNISON members completed their ULR training. They are due to attend the first meeting with training champions for all the service areas across the Council this December. We hope this will be the start of training opportunities for all staff regardless whether they belong to a trade union.

ULRs are really Learning Champions, government legislation has ensured that ULRs have a legal entitlement to carry out their role.

We are keen to recruit and train more ULRs.

If you are interested in finding out what is involved please contact Carmen Bruno (UNISON Life Long Learning Coordinator)
