TSSA represents people working in transport and travel. Our vision is to be a well organised and effective trade union where our members are at the heart of everything that we do. We are now involved in an ambitious growth project – our organising teams are focused on building bigger and stronger workplaces, where members have the power to challenge and create change, to ensure they are respected in their workplace and able to address inequalities.
We are always looking for talented and ambitious Organisers to join our teams. We are looking for individuals who will work with us to inspire, support and develop workplace leaders. Both roles are strategic and focused on delivering membership growth. Our Organisers are leaders in promoting equalities within the workplace and delivering on our policies on public transport.
Being an Organiser in our London and South Team – We have two vacancies in this team for experienced Trade Union Organisers or individuals who have transferable skills developed in similar types of work. You will be able to identify, plan and pursue organising and campaigning opportunities that achieve the strategic aims, objectives and policies of TSSA. You will be responsible for members across companies ensuring the provision of individual and collective representation. You will be able to lead collective negotiations with employers representing members in pursuance of TSSA’s bargaining and organising agenda. You will be responsible for coaching lay reps and activists promoting equalities in the workplace.
