GWR: TSSA Union Learning Rep Elections

26 October 2020

This is to make All TSSA members in GWR aware that given the recent interest in Union learning representative positions and the expressions of interest received we will be running a formal nomination process for the vacancies that exist.

Recent advertisement

Some members will have seen the recent communication from GWR in their vacancy list 29 advertising vacancies for Union Learning Representatives(ULR’s), this was as part of an agreement at the joint Company and Trade Union Learning Forum. As a result of the interst created by this advertisement I wanted to ensure that all members in GWR were aware of the vacancies and ensure that there was a fair process for people to stand for nomination as we have had 3 expressions of interest from the same workplace and only 2 vacancies left.

I would therefore call on members within GWR who are interested in this position to send Alan Valentine a completed nomination form via email by clicking here.Nominations shoud be completed with the candidates details signature and 6 nominations from other TSSA members and received by no later than 9am on Monday 16th November 2020
