Organiser Pathways Level 4: Craft of Organising
The Craft of Organising course is a two-part course for experienced organisers that further develops participants’ skills and knowledge in organising theory and practice, in the context of the current workplace relations system.
Responding with Compassion – FDV Leave Training
Family and domestic violence is a national crisis, and by becoming a legislated leave entitlement, Paid Family and Domestic Violence leave will actively save lives. As unionists we have a responsibility to understand the changes so we can help create safe workplaces and support those who need to access leave.
Sociology for Unionists
Whatever role you play at your union, understanding our social reality can help ground your work. The course introduces you to Liberation Sociology, a framework that will equip you with practical tools to engage in liberation for all those who experience exclusion and exploitation because of class, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, disability, and age.
Workplace Health & Safety for Organisers
The Health and Safety for Organisers course introduces organisers to the opportunities and legal frameworks for organising around health and safety issues. It helps organisers understand the differences between health and safety and industrial laws, and how good health and safety structures in workplaces support workers.
Whether you’re an Official, Organiser or Industrial Officer, a comprehensive understanding of Australia’s industrial relations system will enhance your ability to deliver positive change on behalf of the workers you represent.
Media Skills for Union Officials
For some union officials, engaging with media is part of the day-to-day. Fronting the media doesn’t always come naturally, but thankfully it’s a skill that can be taught and intentionally practised.
Ending Workers Exploitation in Global Supply Chains
This course is all about exploring pragmatic ways to build worker voices in global supply chains. You will have the opportunity to extend your understanding of how global supply chains operate, including the gaps and weaknesses in existing regulatory frameworks – contextualised within the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the importance of modern slavery and human rights due diligence legislation.
Advanced Recruitment Skills: Coaching for Growth
In the face of falling union density and the pressures of everyday organising, it often feels like we are treading water when it comes to union growth. Every union member has a vital role to play, which is why it’s so important for organisers to take the time to transfer their knowledge, confidence and skills to union members.
Climate Action for Unionists
Climate change is a workplace issue. It affects us all. This course is all about providing you practical strategies to both climate-proof your workplace – in alignment with WHS legislation – and to take a more active role in climate change campaigns, particularly campaigns for a just energy transition.
Commonwealth Work Health & Safety Entry Permit Holders
Commonwealth Work Health and Safety Entry Permit Holders have an important role to play in unions, with a range of powers in accordance with the Fair Work Act 2009.
