Wednesday 10 May 2023, 10am – 2pm


ANMF (Vic Branch), 535 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne

Length of program

3.5 hour half-day training program with a light lunch provided.

Who should attend?

All ANMF Job Representatives and/or HSRS are encouraged to attend.

Paid Union Training Leave

Depending on the entitlements in the applicable enterprise agreement, Job Reps may be eligible to receive paid union training leave from their employer to participate in these programs. If there is no entitlement and the employer will not provide paid training leave, Job Reps may be eligible to apply for an ANMF ‘loss of pay’ subsidy when taking leave without pay to attend.

Once registered, Job Reps will be provided with written confirmation, and a letter to be forwarded to their relevant NUM/MUM/Line Manager requesting leave to participate in union training.
