Fórsa joins union collaboration effort
|Fórsa official Seán McElhinney said it was an exciting opportunity to collaborate with other unions in the UK and Europe.
Fórsa has become a supporter of ‘Unions 21,’ a forum for unions to work together to develop practical projects to build union leadership and organisation. The union is the first outside the UK to take part.
The initiative involves unions from the public and private sector, and provides a forum for learning and debate with experts and academics, and to share ideas with not-for-profits and businesses with similar experiences. The forum also offers practical support including masterclasses and training.
Fórsa official Seán McElhinney said it was an exciting opportunity to collaborate with other unions in the UK and Europe. “We’re looking forward to contributing to building the power and influence of workers throughout the movement, as part of our ongoing work to create a stronger, more powerful union that delivers for our members,” he said.
Unions 21 executive director Becky Wright said: 'I'm so pleased to formally welcome Fórsa to Unions 21. Fórsa is a forward thinking union with many of the challenges that our existing unions face in the UK, and I’m looking forward to sharing ideas, best practices and projects that can help build all of our unions for the 21st century.”
