ULR One Day Workshop


The URTU Learning Project are hosting a one day workshop around the role of the Union Learning Representative (ULR).

This will be held on the 22nd September 2017 in Northampton.

The role of the ULR plays a vital role in promoting Life Long Learning in the workplace and community.  The aim of the URTU Learning project is to assist and guide all individuals in all aspects of learning and unlock their potential, without ULR’s the project would not be able to reach this aim. For further information about the role and the difference it can make, visit the ULR page within this site.

A report showed how union representatives significantly improve labour retention, and reduced absenteeism, with estimated savings to employers of between £72 and £143 million

URTU Learning are hosting this workshop for URTU members who would like to become a ULR or would like to know more about the role.  Some of the aspects which will be covered in these workshops are:

  • The Role of the Union Learning Rep (ULR)
  • The types of support you will receive
  • Working with your employer
  • Working with educational providers
  • Developing workplace opportunities
