8. build workplace organisation Trade unionism is all about organising workers around a common experience. Self-organisation is members organising around their experience of prejudice and discrimination. It involves members identifying issues and finding solutions. It builds members’ confidence about what they can do by organising together. It leaves members feeling good about the union and ready to recruit others. 9. work with community and other campaign groups Working with community groups and attending community events promotes and strengthens UNISON campaigns. Organising at community events raises the branch profile and recruits members, particularly from isolated workplaces. A branch LGBT group helps build links with local communities. LGBT groups attend scores of LGBT pride and other community events each year, spreading our campaign messages and bringing new members into the union. 10.become stronger Self-organisation is vital to UNISON. It helps our recruiting, negotiating, campaigning and equality objectives. Branch SOGs help defend jobs, terms and conditions and services. They help branches have a strong and dynamic presence in the workplace. Self-organisation strengthens UNISON - a branch LGBT group will help the branch become stronger.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
