There are more than 12,000 trained ULR’s providing advice and securing learning and training opportunities in workplaces around the country.
GMB now have a number of Union Learning Reps that will be working with members to improve learning opportunities within your workplace.
ULR’s will assist to identify learning needs, and give support to members in order for them to overcome barriers to learning. They can also signpost members to other sources of advice and support.
They will work with the employer to discuss and improve learning opportunities, ensure equality of opportunity in learning, and negotiate about learning and skills as part of the bargaining process.
ULR’s work with outside organisations such as TUC Learning Services, agencies e.g. Basic Skills Agency and Local Colleges and Training Providers.
GMB ULR’s will be visiting your workplace, and providing questionnaires to identify your learning needs.
We will be asking what members want to learn, where they may want to learn, any practical problems members may face, and what members want out of learning and training.
