Appeal for Union Learning Representatives

21 February 2011

Union Learning Representatives (ULRs) help change lives. They work to support their work colleagues in finding and accessing learning opportunities. They promote learning and training within their employer and their workplace. They negotiate course provision with local colleges, universities and others.

TSSA is on the look-out for members at c2c who want a fresh challenge, to help others and make their workplace a fairer, better trained and more successful place. We are in discussion with company management about establishing a Learning Agreement that encourages workplace learning, but we need ULRs to help translate that commitment into action.

Every ULR receives paid release from c2c for TSSA’s intitial thorough training, and afterwards regular paid release for carrying out their ULR responsibilities.

If you are interested in taking up this opportunity then please contact George Woods, TSSA Learning Organiser, for an informal chat about the role. He will provide you with more information and a ULR job description. Email him at or call 07894 586904.

How do you become a Union Learning Rep?

If you want to stand as a ULR, initially for a period up to the end of 2011:

- If only one person applies for any vacancy then that person will be automatically elected and will be advised of the next steps – including meeting the Lead ULR and going on the Intro training courses
- If we receive more than two applications then an election will be held for that location and you will be advised of the situation.
