Motion 9 Industrial Training
Motion 9 carried at this year’s Annual Conference instructed the Postal Executive to seek nominations from Branches for CWU Representatives to deliver local based industrial training to CWU Representatives.
The full terms of the motion are reproduced below:
This Conference agrees that the more industrial training we can get for our Reps on national agreements is in the best interests of our members. Therefore the Postal Executive is instructed to look for nominations via a LTB for CWU Reps across the country to deliver local based training to CWU Reps on:-
• The Conduct Agreement.
• The Attendance Procedure.
• The Industrial Relations Framework, CWU and joint training.
• Any delivery based training such as Mod 1 and Mod 2 Revision training, IWT training.
• Any proposed resourcing training as and when it is developed both joint and CWU.
This list is not exhaustive.
The nominated people would be expected to have experience in the subject they would like to deliver and would have to detail their experience within their application. The successful nominations would initially be given Train the Trainer sessions on the relevant training that they have opted to deliver with a view of expanding presentational skills as required.
CWU HQ via the DGS(P) and Education Department would keep up to date records of the CWU trainers and the relevant training they have volunteered to deliver and update the records via further nominations/skills/subjects as and when people leave or when there are any necessary changes.
The Postal Executive is instructed accordingly.
In light of the Motion, the Department is writing to all Branches to seek their nominations for Representatives to facilitate and deliver industrial training and provide an opportunity to further develop their skills in the future. As the Motion makes clear, the nominated people must have experience in the subject they would like to deliver and detail this as part of their application.
Branches are therefore requested to forward the names of their proposed nominees by completing the pro-forma provided (please print off and use more copies of the pro-forma as required). The completed forms should include the individual’s contact details, the subjects they wish to deliver and their nominating Branch. Could Branches please complete and return the pro-forma(s) by no later than Friday 6th July 2018.
Any enquiries in relation to the content of this LTB should be addressed to the DGS(P) Department.
