    It seems a good comprehensive course.

    IOWTUC Secretary needs to speak to SERTUC about the possibilities of organising sessions on the Isle of Wight. We need to consider how to adapt the course in order to make it attractive by examining the current problems of the workplace locally. The TUC and the unions need to cover the costs and consider what time of the week it is organised for. Most of all, in light of the Trades Union Bill becoming an Act, what issues and difficulties will Trades Unionists need to know so that we ensure that it is imperative to attend. What can we do to ensure attendance?
