Why get active in your branch
Getting involved in your branch offers a chance for you to influence the decisions of the branch – and in turn make a difference in your workplace.
Volunteering brings personal benefits too:
- you can get free training and learning opportunities – and time off work while you learn;
- you gain valuable experience in new areas;
- you can create a better workplace and better public services;
- it looks good on your CV.
How to get active
If you want to help out, why not offer to lend a hand from time to time? What you do depends on how much time you have. You might be able to help get the room ready for a meeting, hand out information or put up posters advertising branch meetings. Just speak to your local branch. Whether it’s a particular campaign that interests you, or a group, or just being part of the everyday running of the union, your branch will be able to help you get involved.
