Bits & Bobs

The Amicus section of UNITE – The Union held its delegate conference recently. You can read all the decisions of the conference online.
Postal workers in the CWU are staging further strikes as part of their campaign over pay and to defend the postal service. The CWU has produced a leaflet explaining the dispute.
As part of the Amicus “Africa Matters” campaign, the union has produced a free online training course in partnership with Action for Southern Africa and the University of Leeds. The course covers:

  • Unit 1 – provides a historical introduction to the contexts that have shaped Southern African countries
  • Unit 2 – introduces you to key issues facing the people and countries of Southern Africa
  • Unit 3 – encourages you to design and implement initiatives that develop links and solidarity activities between trade unionists here and in Southern Africa.

More information is available on the Amicus web site.
