Get internet literate. Tutor Pete McDonald 821000/821123 but just turning up would be OK..
TUC Shop Stewards’ course stages 1/2, Health & Safety stages 1/2 ten weeks. Week beginning 22 Jan 2000 details
UNISON Dudley Group of Hospitals strikers – the demonstration, PFI conference and rally during the latest 12-day strike attracted up to 2,500 people from as far away as Scotland. Our banner was present. Support now is vitally important as their action reaches a crucial stage.
Julie Weekes, long-time NATFHE delegate and TUC tutor has a new job in Lewisham, so good luck!
YELLOW PAGES – the trade union section is woefully poor with few branches listed. It is quite likely that non-members might look it up to get a contact to join so why not list your branch? 0800 533 433 to enquire about a free line-listing. W’ton TUC and the CATUC should now be in the next edition but hurry as it is being compiled now. It’s probably worth trying Thompsons too since we’re not all on-line yet!
