Manufacturing: Training for unionists.
pounds 500,000 will be set aside for the establishment of the academy, which aims to recruit more members to the T&G and to train a new generation of activists.
Members, shop stewards and activists will be trained to identify and target workplaces where there is little or no union activity, to build up worker involvement and representation.
The T&G is confident that the initiative will result in increased union membership and a reinvigoration of trade union activity.
Barry Camfield, T&G assistant general secretary, responsible for organising strategy, said: 'The T&G represents members in most sectors of the economy and will be targeting workplaces to help the workforce win union organisation.'
