Download this publication:


Unionlearn has commissioned research on learning agreements and analysed 281 learning agreements and surveyed 415 employers. The research found that the content of learning agreements covers statement of principles, commitments to partnerships, creating a learning culture and setting out the employer, ULR and union roles. Learning committees were another essential part of learning agreements with around three quarters making a reference to establishing one. Workplaces with learning agreements demonstrate higher level of employer engagement in union learning than those without learning agreements. The results of the research are published in the research paper.
