10:00 – Workshop begins

This workshop, run by WISERD researchers, will share insights from recent trade union campaigns which effectively used social media to get their messages across.

The workshop is designed for trade union officials and activists who want to develop their understanding of the strategic use of social media in trade union organising.

The two hour workshop will cover:

  • An analysis of how social media was used in the recent McStrike campaign
  • Information of how different trade unions currently use social media
  • Practical activities which explore effective trade union social media activity

The event will be followed by a buffet lunch and networking.

This event is organised by the Wales Institute of Social and Economic Research, Data and Methods (WISERD) in partnership with the Wales TUC.
