Take action

Branches are being asked to take action and specifically:

  • set branch policy
  • seek and promote agreement from key local stakeholders (eg, management, student unions etc)
  • recruit and organise EU nationals and other international staff.

Recruitment campaigns can be tricky at the best of times. Our plan to mobilise, recruit, and organise EU and other international staff is ambitious. The national campaigns team is available to assist branches and work on our campaign together.

See our guide to local campaigningguidance on recruiting and organising also further information on our Build the Union site.
