ATW: Reps Vacancies

10 June 2015

We are writing to members to ask them to nominate themselves for positions that have now become available, namely 2 Union Learning representativesÂ’ positions with no fixed locations or grade and 1 Health & Safety representative based at St DavidÂ’s house for management grade which we have recently negotiated. We are taking this opportunity to remind members that there are local reps positions still vacant and details are shown in the table below.



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 Alan Valentine by clicking here

General Positions


Number of seats

Union Learning Representatives (Open to all TSSA members)


Grade or Location specific Positions


Local Stations Clerical Representatives (open to TSSA members within the Stations Grades at the appropriate location)




Mid Wales


Local Management Grade representatives


St Mary’s House & St David’s House


There will need to be a degree of flexibility for the above representative, working in conjunction with Company council representatives to ensure Management members in other worksites have adequate representation.


Health & Safety Reps


Number of seats

Local Health & Safety Representatives - Management:


St David’s House


To be clear as we ran elections in 2014 the term of these positions will be aligned to the 3 year term during that election process, therefore once filled the term of office will end midway through 2017.

Outgoing reps

Thanks must go to Sandra Vaughan and Michelle Thomas who have decided to stand down as Union learning representatives for TSSA. They have done a lot of work on behalf of TSSA members and their colleagues and are continuing to represent members in other areas but their contribution is much appreciated
