UCU has produced a reps handbook to help reps perform their vital role in the workplace
The handbook brings together information on the role of the rep, their duties and draws upon many our existing resources for reps, along with materials from our training programme. It also includes comments and tips provided by our many existing reps, along with providing links signposts to other sources of more detailed information
You can also browse specific areas of the life of the rep in this section. For more information please contact Justine Stephens.
