Become A Workplace Delegate.
You can make a contribution to Real Change by making our Union visible in your workplace. You can do this as a Workplace Delegate.
What is a Workplace Delegate?
A Workplace Delegate is a member who has put their hand up to become more active in our Union because they are passionate about creating a better workplace for everyone at work. They are supported by their fellow members to represent and organise their workplace. Workplace Delegates are essential because the work that they do keeps our Union strong and united.
