Saturday 22 March 10am - 6pm - SolFed Workplace Organiser Training, Edinburgh.
The Solidarity Federation workplace organiser training programme is designed to give workers the tools and confidence to organise in their workplaces, whether or not there’s an existing union. Even if you’ve had training from another union, you may find the direct action based approach we adopt offers a fresh perspective. Open to all workers, apart from managers, you do not have to be a SolFed member or an anarcho-syndicalist to come along.
If you would like to attend, please email training[AT]solfed.org.uk
