The annual Unions Tasmania Anna Stewart Memorial Project and Women’s Conference will be held at the end of July.
The Anna Stewart Memorial Project is a week-long training course aimed at increasing women delegates’ participation in their unions. Participants learn about how unions work and get training in a supportive environment on key aspects of union organising and growth with a focus on women’s involvement and why unions are so critical for women. The training includes: organising and campaigning, industrial law and how it operates, politics 101, building union activity through recruitment and leadership development. It also includes a women in politics panel, a visit to the industrial commission and culminates with the Unions Tas Women’s Conference on the Friday.
The Women’s Conference is a jam-packed day full of inspirational women speakers, campaigning and workshops.
If you are interested in participating in either of these training opportunities, please contact your local ASU Organiser to express your interest.
