Usdaw Second Series Summer School

Date: 11 - 16 September 2022 Location: Hillscourt, Birmingham Contact No: 0161 224 2804
Usdaw's Second Series Summer School is intended for experienced and active members who play a leading role in Union activities at their branch and workplace.

The School deals with different aspects of industrial relations. Each group will deal with one specialist subject only taken from those listed below and will have the same tutor throughout the week.

The School will divide into different seminar groups:
  • Trade Unions and Organising.
  • Politics and Organising.
  • Women and Organising.
  • Health and Safety and Organising.
Every student will be encouraged to relate the subject under discussion to their own workplace/branch and to participate fully in the School activities. There will be some campaigning on the streets of one of the local towns.

The Union will pay board and accommodation fees and members awarded a place will be entitled to claim travelling fares and any appropriate allowances.

How to Apply

Each branch can nominate up to two members for each Summer School. Successful nominees will be selected by the National Executive Council from the shortlists submitted by each Regional Council.

Second Series Summer School is open only to members who have attended the First Series Summer School, or Second Series Summer School on a previous occasion*

*there must be a gap of 3 years (e.g if you attended Second Series Summer School in 2019 you cannot attend again until 2023) and members must choose a different seminar group. See application forms for full details.

Arrangements for this event will be confirmed in due course. The Union will follow the Government’s Coronavirus guidelines at the time and all necessary precautions will be taken.
