Council of Trade Union Conferences, Hui and Fono 2021
As a member of the Council of Trade Unions (CTU), MERAS has the right to participate in the CTU Runanga and CTU sector groups – Women’s, Out @ Work (LGBTQI network), Komiti Pasefika, and Stand Up (the youth network).
The CTU Runanga and sector groups each run conferences, hui or fono every second year, normally held in the year between the CTU Biennial Conference. However, because of Covid-19 the Runanga and sector conferences were postponed to 2021, the same year as the Biennial Conference.
We are inviting those workplace reps who have previously completed our union education programmes to express an interest in attending one of these conferences, hui or fono. Each of these events are run as Employment Relations Education courses which means you will get paid leave to attend. They can also count towards your QLP leadership portfolio.
