The safety of our members and staff during this Covid-19 outbreak is a priority to us. We want to reassure you that we are listening to the concerns of our members and taking appropriate action based on the best advice from government and our national office.

In light of this, it has been agreed that ALL regional classroom training courses will be cancelled up until September 2021.

In these uncertain times, it is not clear when it will be safe to return to the classrooms. Our priority is to ensure that members and staff do not risk their health to attend training. We will be focussing our time, planning and resources on developing online training for all members and activists.

If you are booked onto a classroom course prior to July 2021, you should assume that this has been cancelled. Please continue to check the Education website for updates and additional training.

We now have a Regional Online Course programme for both Activist and Member education. Click here to view or use the link below.

For more useful learning resources, please visit the TUC and UNISON learning sites – they have valuable e-notes that all reps can access at any time.

Thank you for all you’re doing in this time of national emergency. It is urgent that we continue to be vigilant with supporting members during the coming months. UNISON’s advice for negotiating with employers is being updated constantly. If you have concerns about the measures your employer is taking to keep staff safe, please raise these with your branch and your branch’s regional organiser.

If there’s anything that you need additional help or assistance with please let us know.

Our best wishes to you all.

Regional Education Officer
