Victorian Trades Hall Council is running an online program called solidarity School this year instead of the usual Union winter program. This is due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the fact that many people are now working from home.
In a time of unprecedented change young workers must come together, share lessons, ideas, skills and be part of rebuilding stronger workplaces together beyond COVID-19.
Solidarity School will run online over Zoom for 6 weeks, beginning in mid-July and running in an early evening one day a week. Solidarity School would include online classes and learning materials aimed at giving delegates, members and activists an interactive crash course in union history, organising, campaign tactics and strategy.
All applicants would receive a certificate on completion of Solidarity School.
The ASU is calling for members to lodge an expression of interest for the program. Successful applicants will be appointed an ASU Organiser as a mentor.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with an explanation about why you would like to participate in the program, what union experience you have as a delegate or member and what you want to achieve from the program.
Expressions of interest must be in by COB Monday 13 July 2020.
