We have eight Union Learning Reps (ULRs) in Euston Tower who arrange and promote union learning for members in the workplace.

Learning Centre

With the support of Management our ULRs started a learning Centre in February 2009. The learning centre has successfully hosted several courses including Web Design, Arabic and Computer Courses Level 1 & 2. Around 200 colleagues have benefited from these courses. The ULRs are now aiming to hold further courses in Languages & CV Writing. The Learning Centre has also been helpful for Union Reps & Colleagues in other nearby HMRC Buildings.

With the help and support of everyone in HMRC Euston Tower the ULRs hope to keep the Learning Centre running for many years to come.

Book Club

The Branch Book Club in March 2011

The ULRs also organise and run a monthly Book Club for staff in Euston Tower.

The book club is a very popular facility with over 200 books to chose from.

It also provides members with an opportunity to discuss wider PCS issues with branch reps and gives us an opportunity to explain PCS and the branch to non-members.

Featured Learning Video

A short film of some of the activities at this year’s Learning at Work Day back in June, organised by our Union Learning Reps (ULRs).

The film has clips of the British Sign Language, Cake Decoration and Salsa sessions. the full day’s line-up was:

British Sign Langauage – Jo Phillips
Green Skills – Sean Ruddy & Sarah Pearce
Union Learn – Adrian Ryan & Oreleo Du-Cran
Head Massage – Maria Perera
Cake Decoration – Nila Suriyakamur
Salsa Dance – Rachel

We did film the Green Skills, Union Learn and head Massage sessions but the footage didn’t come out too well.
