Northern TUC Development event

The TUC recognises the importance of ensuring that Union Health and Safety Representatives are given the tools and knowledge to support their members.

Regional Secretary Beth Farhat said:

The Northern TUC Health & Safety Working Group told us that briefings and information on specific topics would be useful for reps in their role as workplace representatives.”

The topics being covered at the seminar include:

  • Climate change and just transition, what it means for the North
  • Health and Safety Executive priorities now and looking forward
  • Building trade union membership through Health and Wellbeing

The development seminar is FREE to attend and is open to all trade union reps and members. The afternoon will be preceded by an informal meeting of health and safety reps where you can meet other health and safety representatives, discuss issues in your workplace and build contacts.

Beth added:

We will also be launching the Northern TUC’s Asbestos Support & Campaign Group Annual Report at the seminar.”

The event runs from 12.00 to 16.00 at The County Hotel in Newcastle on Tuesday 24th September with lunch and refreshments being provided. An agenda and confirmation will be sent out prior to the event.
