About this course:
Unions play a distinct role advocating for workers’ interests. Everything a union does is for the benefit of its members and working people, anchored in union values of fairness and solidarity.
This course will help you build a foundational understanding of what unions are, who they represent, and why they are essential to society and the economy.
You will also learn about the history of union achievements in Australia and abroad, from the eight-hour workday and penalty rates, to more recent achievements such as the introduction of paid Family and Domestic Violence leave following a decade-long campaign.
This course is offered in two-day training via online (zoom).
