ASLEF Embraces the Digital Divide

Although employers provide job-specific training, ASLEF identified the need to equip train drivers with the confidence and skills to deal with the new technology, and that some workers may, first of all, need to gain basic IT and digital skills. Read more about how ASLEF arranged courses for train drivers through the Learning Fund from Scottish Union Learning to address these learning needs.

Case Study: Community the Union and Respecting Diversity

Community Union has recently established a union/management Joint Learning Committee in Whistl (formerly TNT Post) based in Tannochside, Uddingston. The Committee has quickly taken off, and the union and management worked together on organising courses with an initial focus on health and well-being, and better employee relations. This began with a short workshop style course in September 2016 called ‘Respecting Diversity in the Workplace’ which was delivered as three one day sessions to more than 20 learners, including senior staff members, all of whom were given release from work to attend.
