Supporting our reps and members online

Online training and support for activists UNISON is setting up an online system to continue key training for activist during the current crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, when we have had to postpone all face-to-face training and learning opportunities for members. In the meantime, we have quadrupled the capacity of our online couse for new stewards. There are now 100 places available – click on the link below to find out how to register. Our online new stewards’ course is supported by both a TUC tutor and a UNISON learning and organising staff member. We will be there to support you, especially if you’ve not considered or taken part in online learning before now. If you became a new steward in the last six months and haven’t yet taken part in the stewards’ induction training, UNISON will be in touch shortly about how to register for the online course. Keep a watch for news at learning.unison.org.uk. We also have a range of other online support available for all activists. Learning and organising staff will be working with colleagues across all the union’s service groups over the coming days and weeks to make sure we can provide the training our activists and repos need to keep their knowledge and skills up to date and carry out their union role. All UNISON members and activists can refresh their union skills and knowledge with online modules on our e-learning site&...

After decades into the field of medicine, I am unable to come to terms with one of the most fundamental questions in our profession. What does the term Public health means? Have we erred, by defining health in terms of its delivery rather than a comprehensive biological definition? How do you compare a guy, who gets pride with glittering five-star care in a private hospital , with that of man who humbly accepts the same in a crowded public health facility? “It’s 1 .30 AM past midnight. I am part of the  COVID supervisory team on rounds. I could see a tired-looking corporation worke...
