About this course
This course is aimed at early-career Organisers, with at least two to three years’ experience in the field.
It offers the opportunity to increase your capacity and confidence in recruitment and delegate development skills, as well as advancing strategies in problem-solving and dispute resolution. It delves into negotiation skills and offers participants an in-depth look at industrial relations bargaining in Australia.
In Part Two of the course, you’ll hone your negotiation and presentation skills, as well as refine recruitment and campaigning methods. Six weeks after completion of the course, there will be a recall session via Zoom to monitor your progress and share stories.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Use workplace issues to recruit new members
- Develop the capacity of union delegates and workplace activists to participate in dispute resolution and collective negotiations
- Discern from members the key issues most relevant to specific workplaces and how these can be used for recruitment and campaigning
- Describe bargaining and how this has changed over time
