Heartunions Week 10-16 February 2020

Heartunions week is a chance to tell the story about why unions are vital for everyone at work, and encourage people who aren’t yet in a union to join. Every year it’s a chance for reps and activists to publicise what they’ve been doing and make the case for union membership.

Heartunions week is all about recruiting people. In 2020 the TUC will roll out new training on how to have organising conversations, as well as materials and advice to support you in getting new members into your union.

In 2020, the campaigning theme for heartunions is stamping out sexual harassment at work. Look out for more details about how you and your workmates can take action on sexual harassment, and use the campaign to encourage non-members to get involved.

And as always – heartunions belongs to union members and union branches all over the UK. So use the week to raise the profile of your union branch and your workplace priorities in the way that works for your members and activists.

Send an email to Bristol Trades Union Council and tell us about your Heartunions activities, it will also cc South West TUC.

Above all please get involved. As and when more events get organised Bristol Trades Union Council will post details here.

Unions and their network of workplace reps help working people every day. In workplaces all over Britain there are unions making sure we are safe at work, protecting our jobs, pushing for higher pay, and helping us get learning and training.

But millions of our friends and colleagues who are not in a union may not appreciate this. They probably don’t know either that the Tory government is attacking the very trade unions that have done so much to protect workers.

With anti-trade union legislation rushing through parliament there has never been a more important time to speak up for your union. If the Tories get their way, UK workers will be among the easiest to underpay and sack in the western world.

Heartunions week is an opportunity to shout about the great things that you and trade unions achieve together so please get involved. You can find how to at Heartunions week
