What is a union learning rep?

Union learning reps (ULRs) are elected and trained workplace learning representatives. As a ULR, you will be the voice for learning and skills within your workplace and branch.

What do union learning reps do?

ULRs help members get access to learning opportunities and enable them to brush up or learn new skills through working with the union. ULRs are instrumental in championing the importance of training and development and strengthen the branch membership by using learning as an organising tool.

What support is available?

ULRs are supported with advice and training; are given ongoing support with a designated learning organiser. ULRs are an essential part of our union branches and are given rights under the ACAS code of practice. This means you have the right to paid time off to complete any training and reasonable paid time off to carry your duties.
