Be a union contact
> Union contacts don’t necessarily have the time to come to meetings, or want to represent colleagues at discipline hearings. But they might be willing to give out information, gather colleagues’ views on ongoing issues, and act as a first point of contact for others. They have access to information, support and training.
Be a union advocate
> Get trained up to represent colleagues in discipline hearings. Learn how to support others, and help deliver a fair, lawful outcome for friends and colleagues. Get support from your local branch whenever you need it.
Be a union rep
> Come to meetings when you can (about once a month). Listen to the concerns of other workers, and try to use the union to address them. Be a part of making positive change. Often, union reps will also take on the defence of colleagues in discipline hearings.
