Growing Apprentice Strength a Winner in Wollongong

The union's growth and outreach project for NSW Apprentices kicked off today with events at Wollongong TAFE.

If you're an apprentice and you'd like to learn more about the union, get in touch today through the website or Facebook

The union has hired two dedicated Apprentice Outreach Officers, Jack Brady and Pat Cooke, who will be travelling to TAFEs around NSW and talking to apprentices across a range of industries, including metal trades, boilermaking, printing and graphic design, and mechanics.

Apprentice Outreach Office Pat Cooke talks about apprentice rights and unionism to Woollongong TAFE students.  

Jack and Pat kicked off their schedule of visits at Wollongong TAFE today, where they addressed a class of metal trades apprentices and spoke to them about apprentice rights and work, how the union can support apprentices and what the union stands for. 

At lunchtime the union hosted a lunch and spoke to apprentices one-on-one about any issues they were facing.

Clearly the message got through - with many apprentices signing up to join the union on the spot, and every apprentice giving their contact details so the union can stay in touch.
