How you communicate with members will depend on how many members, how much time you have and what you want to say.
TSSA wants to ensure that workplace reps have the skills and confidence they need to do their job and to enjoy it.
Your union provides a professional training programme covering everything from recruitment to collective bargaining.
Information and advice from our expert staff is at hand when needed and reference materials will be collected on this page.
Organising means involving members in every aspect of union activity.
The more members TSSA recruits, the stronger our union is and the more we can offer to members.
Get your hands on our H&S resources, from inspection sheets to policies and more.
Representing members properly is perhaps the most challenging part of being a rep. You will be given expert training.
TSSA reps have the right not to be victimised or dismissed because of their trade union duties.

The TSSA logo is available for all TSSA reps to use in posters, leaflets and any other materials they want to produce.
