Union Learning Reps – ULRs

UNISON Cymru Wales ULR - Make a difference

A Union Learning Rep (ULR) is the person in the workplace who helps their colleagues to access the learning, training and development they need for work and life.

It’s a legally protected role, like a Health & Safety Rep – meaning your employer has to give you reasonable time off to train and to carry out your role.

We have regular training available in Cymru Wales and at UK level; all you need to do to take part is download the application form and  email Sheila Morris and ask your Branch to support your application.

We are taking application for the next Stage 1 course – delivered as a webinar over four days – and hope to start it soon

In the meantime, you can also volunteer as a workplace digital champion and start supporting your colleagues today.

As you can see from the video, this is a great role for anyone who loves learning, loves helping others, and loves making a practical difference to the people they work with.

As a ULR you’ll become a key part of UNISON’s lifelong learning team and your local UNISON Branch. You will receive all the support you need from our Wales Union Learning Fund (WULF) project and the Wales TUC’s network of ULRs across the country.
