Working Together: Being active on staff side

Published: 09/01/2019
Publication code: 007 153
While your training as an RCN rep offers a great grounding in your duties and the various skills you need, many of us find ourselves taking on a role within staff side that is unexpected. As a result, you find yourself learning the job while you’re doing it, widening your RCN perspective to take in the views of other unions. A need for more support was identified by those attending a joint reps conference and this document is among the results. It’s been created by RCN reps and staff, working together to share their experience and expertise for the benefit of the wider rep community.

Some of our publications are also available in hard copy, but this may entail a small charge. For more information and to order a hard copy please call 0345 772 6100 and select option five.
