Research module completed

23 May 2011, By Guest

We’ve just completed our second module on the Diploma in Organising at the Academy which covers research.

During one of the activities, the group had to undertake research based on a well know sporting company, answering questions from the basic name through to it’s bottom line.  I took a photo of one round of answers because I think it highlights to me, the need for unions to undertake thorough research before undertaking a campaign.

Do we know the views of the company of unions and its workers?  If it’s negative, how can we overcome that to gain union recognition or bargain effectively?

Research into issues, helps us to understand where we are, where we’re going and ultimately determine where we want to be.
