Learn about Trade Unions with Unite

We're pleased to announced that Woodcraft Folk has recently partnered with Unite. 

As one of our affiliates Unite are keen to educate children and young people about Trade Unions, Collective Action, Equality and employment rights.

How Trade Unions were created

Waltham Forest Woodcraft Folk use the stories of the Tolpuddle Martyrs and other workers to learn about how trade unions were created. The document attached below includes the stories so you can act them out, and an activity plan on the final page to help you explore the history and reasons why workers establish trade unions.

Support to strengthen our Trade Union links

Tuesday, 20 November 2012

A new resource has been created to help your Woodcraft Folk group seek affiliation from your local Trade Unions. If you're a member of a Trade Union and would like to propose to them that they formalise their link to Woodcraft Folk, this is for you!

Trade Union Affiliation Advice to Members

This advice is aimed mostly at Woodcraft members who are Trade Union members but who don't usually attend their branch, or those who have never put an affiliation motion forward..

TUC 'A Better Way to Work' resources

The TUC has a range of resources to help young people to learn about employment rights and workplace issues. A Better Way to Work, the TUC schools' resource pack, is primarily aimed at school students studying Key Stage 4 in schools, providing activities which help teachers to prepare students for work experience, citizenship and other work-related activities. However, much of the material can also be used with students aged up to 19. Unit 2 also contains activities specifically aimed at Young Apprentices.
