Trade union training events for 2015

These are the latest dates for trade union courses for reps and members in 2015. They will be on the events diary in due course, but you can register now by emailing

The courses take place at the NUJ offices in London, Glasgow and Manchester.

Michelle Stanistreet, NUJ general secretary, said: "These free trade union training courses are essential for reps so they can fulfill their duties and play an active role in the union. They will provide reps with the tools to represent members and give them confidence in negotiating and health and safety. Well-trained reps are the bedrock of the union."
