“The regional team and the local reps will be showcasing the benefits of Community to all new employees as soon as they begin employment…”

After recently becoming the recognised trade union at the XPO Doncaster site, Community’s local rep team have already been working together to make sure the workforce has strong representation and support whilst the company plan to upscale and grow.

Community Regional Organiser Matthew Cooke and Project Officer Michelle Graham met with the local reps to create bespoke recruitment packs and provide tips and guidance on presentation skills and public speaking.

Speaking after the rep workshops, Matthew said “The regional team and the local reps will be showcasing the benefits of Community to all new employees as soon as they begin employment. The reps are really keen to lead on this and I look forward to seeing how this evolves.

“Community strives to give the utmost support to their reps and members whether in our established, strong branches or our fledgling branches within the union, and that commitment is what allows us to reach out to all workers, wherever they work.”

Community offers bespoke representation and legal support at work and at home, as well as great money off discounts and offers on a range of nights in and days out.
