CPSU Delegates picked up new skills before Easter
IN LAUNCESTON four Delegates took part in an ACTU Delegate Training Course, with CPSU organisers Kathryn Lee and Leah Cauchi by their sides. Organisers said it was a great couple of days.
“Leah and I enjoyed getting to know the Delegates and helping them with their mapping and planning,” Kathryn said. “We also stocked up their supplies of notice board kits and membership forms.”
Here’s what three of the four CPSU Delegates had to say:
Department of Education Social Worker Lisa Hudson: “As a Delegate, I found the training helped me to be more aware of my role and responsibilities”.
LGH Building and Engineering’s John Slore has been a CPSU Member for 28 years and a Delegate for 20 but it’s the first time he’d taken part in Delegate training. John said he found it “very enjoyable and enlightening, well worth the two days in the company of other Delegates”.
UTAS Library’s Ian Bollard said he always felt a sense of trepidation and wariness at sessions like Delegate Training but “the Delegate training arranged by the CPSU has given me confidence and skills to approach workplace issues and with the knowledge that the union will support me”.
Department of Infrastructure, Energy and Resources driver instructor Phil Evans also took part in the training.
