Free training and networking event for outsourced workers.

Outsourced workers are the forgotten heroes who keep the country going.

At Our Work Matters: Outsourced Workers Connect, workplace union reps and members who are outsourced and work in facilities management roles* in the public sector will come together to discuss the issues facing their colleagues and workplaces, and how to run successful campaigns to resolve them.

This training event will give practical advice and support on key everyday workplace issues such as winning better pay for outsourced workers; your health and safety rights at work; what to do if your job is TUPE’d (transferred) to a different employer; and how to build a workplace union for outsourced workers.

You’ll hear directly from other outsourced workers and union reps who won have campaigns in their workplaces for higher pay, more holiday days, better sick pay and insourcing.

It’ll also be an excellent opportunity for you to network and make new connections with people working in similar roles and workplaces to you. The packed programme of interactive workshops will feature inspirational union reps as speakers and will give key practical advice.

During this event, we will also visit parliament and speak to several MPs, so that they can understand the challenges facing outsourced workers.

Sign up and join other union reps and members to learn, share, connect and make a difference in your workplace.

* Facilities management roles include outsourced caterers, cleaners, security guards, porters and building services.

Speak to your union about getting time off work to attend this training. A small number of bursaries will be available for travel expenses. If you are interested in applying, please email [email protected] for more details.
