ATW: Elections

2 April 2014

Elections are now due for some of the positions outside of the Company council structures. Therefore we will be running a nomination period and elections for Local Representatives positions, Health and Safety Positions, Union Learning representatives and for TSSA’s seat on the Pensions committee.

 

Elections

Do you want to see real change in your workplace? Do you want to play a part in bringing about that change? Have you got what it takes to make a difference? Then get involved – become a TSSA rep! TSSA provides full training for these roles, for which the company will release you from your normal duties whilst paying your usual salary.

Some of the positions that are due for election are open to All TSSA members within ATW and some are Grade and/or location specific. Below is an outline of the positions that are now due for election. If you are interested in getting more involved with TSSA but you don’t think any of the below positions fit you then please email valentinea@tssa.org.uk
