HSUWA Training

2019 Training Opportunities!

One of the key roles the union plays is educating our members about their rights and entitlements at work. You and your union have won many hard fought battles to obtain those rights and the best way to ensure they are retained is to educate and empower you.

Education happens when you call or email for advice, when you receive support while dealing with an issue and it also happens via our free training activities. As a HSUWA member this training is free.

If you work in the public sector, you can also use your paid trade union training leave to attend. If you are employed in the private sector, please check your enterprise agreement for your entitlements or contact the union office for advice.


This one-day, hands-on course is the first step to understanding your rights at work. It includes practical exercises using your Enterprise Agreement and plenty of discussion with your colleagues about your challenges and how to address them. Participant feedback from this course includes “really switched a light on for me!” and “I feel so much more confident about my rights now”

The course is available for all current, financial members.

You can enrol in any of the course dates below via email to union@hsuwa.com.au
