We invite all UK social workers and social work students to talk with the Social Workers Union (SWU)  on Tuesday, 29 March 2022 from 6:00pm to 7:00pm about workplace issues that they are experiencing.

This session is free to attend regardless of membership.

The webinar is set up so that questions can be asked anonymously.

A panel of Advice & Representation Trade Union Officers along with a SWU Legal Advisor will be on hand to answer your questions live during the webinar. Here are some of the topics we will also be addressing based on recent enquiries:

  • Menopause as a disability
  • Discrimination by association
  • Variation of contracts
  • What are your rights when you experience sickness during a holiday

You have until March 28th at 11:45pm to register your place for the March 29th Talk to SWU webinar.
