Social work Union Contacts promote SWU and encourage new members to join. You’ll be the first point of contact for new and existing members within your workplace.
Every Union Contact works with our national organiser to support their role and set up meetings. The SWU Trade Union Official manages any direct employers relations instead of Union Contacts, which is different the traditional union shop steward.
As a SWU Union Contact you’ll:
be mentored by a SWU Trade Official
receive regular mailings and updates from SWU
gain access to SWU training, support and information
recruit and encourage new members
promote and be involved in campaigns, events, rallies and demonstrations
All volunteers are reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses. You’ll also receive access to SWU training and support.
