Appeal for Union Learning Representatives

8 December 2010

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 Eurostar who want a fresh challenge, to help others and make their workplace a fairer, better trained and more successful place. We are appealing for others who wish to take forward this exciting and rewarding area of TSSA’s work. In particular, we are looking for ULRs to cover the following workplaces:

- Kent House, Ashford
- Times House, London

Every ULR receives paid release from Eurostar for TSSA’s initial 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 Karl Rogers, TSSA Learning Organiser, for an informal chat about the role. He will provide you with more information and a ULR job description. Email him ] or call 07715 494064.

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:
