ACTU TRAINEESHIPS: HSRs ENCOURAGED TO APPLY

The ACTU Organising Works traineeship is a program designed to develop the next generation of union organisers, empowering individuals who are passionate about workers' rights who want to make a difference in their communities and workplaces.

The ACTU encourages applications from:

  • Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs): If you're an active union HSR, this is an excellent opportunity to enhance your skills and contribute to building stronger workplaces.
  • Workplace Leaders: If you know workplace leaders who aspire to become organisers, encourage them to apply. They'll receive training and support to effectively advocate for workers' rights.

There are three ways to get involved:

  • Active union HSRs can apply directly for the program.
  • Unions and existing organisers can sponsor workplace leaders or HSRs to participate in the traineeship.
  • Consider taking on an Organising Works trainee within your organisation.

Diversity is essential, so applications from individuals of all backgrounds are encouraged. Applications close on 15 July. Find more information here.
