Things get better with UNISON learning.

UNISON is offering a fantastic interactive workshop option for UNISON members in the South West.

To support members and activists within UNISON to speak up about the value of their roles and of local government within their communities.

It’s time to recognise, celebrate and defend local government workers and services. UNISON is calling on the Government to give councils the emergency funding they need to avoid even deeper cuts to vital local government services. To do this, we need you, our local government members, to talk to MPs and on social media about the value of your roles and of local government services.

LEARNING AIM: To support members and activists within the union to speak up about the value of their roles and of local government within their communities.

• Participants are able to identify the impact they bring to individuals and the community
• Participants understand how to engage people through effective story telling
• Participants are able to speak with confidence about the work they do

We have 25 spaces available.
