You’re reading one of five new fortnightly Fórsa bulletins. This one’s tailored for members in education. We also have bespoke editions for members in the civil service, health, local authorities and the services and enterprises sector.
The initiative represents our determination to improve member communications in the new union.
We’ve also published the first edition of our new Fórsa magazine (see picture), which should now be available in your workplace.
The new Fórsa website will take a little longer to get in place, simply because of the scale of the task of merging the best from the former union websites, adding new content, and finalising a top-class design. Staff from each of the three former unions have been working together in this, and we expect to have the new Fórsa website up in March.
In the meantime, you can go to a holding page at www.forsa.ie. This page links to our social media platforms – on Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and Soundcloud. Our first tweet reached over 16,400 people. And, since the start of the year, we’ve had over 1,370 Facebook engagements.
We look forward to delivering further improvements in Fórsa communications and information over the coming months. Do let us know what you think!
Bernard Harbor, Fórsa head of communications.
