How can you help your union become even stronger? 

Your role as a Worksite Representative

< Back to Your Workplace

Worksite Representative Stage 1 Course 

This course, for current WSR, deepens your understanding of our values, purpose and processes.

It focuses on the development of your skills and confidence to represent members and resolve issues in the workplace, including interpretation and application of industrial documents (for example EBA) and legislation.

It encourages you to build a positive and active union culture in your workplace.

On this course you will develop a realistic and achievable Action Plan for your worksite with support from a Professional Liaison Officer. 

Worksite Representative Stage 2 Course 

This course commences with a report back in relation to the achievements and challenges you have faced in meeting your priorities.

In this course you will build on your knowledge and skills and develop confidence to deal with more complex issues, consultation and negotiation in your workplace.

There is also a focus on issues and advocacy that extend beyond a worksite and the role of unions in campaigning for changes to improve conditions and the health system.

You will review and update your Action Plan with a key focus on building the number of active union members, union workplace culture, voice and influence.
