What is the aim of the program?
 The aim of our Foundations program is to provide Job Reps with the essential tools and knowledge to perform their role. Our Foundations program consists of an Online module, accompanied by a 1-day training program. This combination has been designed to provide Job Reps with basic information about the ANMF Victorian Branch, the role and history of unions, and covers the fundamentals of the ANMF Job Representative role.


What does the program cover?
 The program examines the structure and functions of the ANMF, unions and their role both historically and currently, as well as the role of the ANMF Job Rep.

Participants are provided with a variety of information, materials and resources to set in motion ANMF activity in their own workplace.


Length of program
Completion of the online module, approximately 1-2 hours
 (The Online module is available via the ANMF member portal - direct link and instructions can be found here.)


1-Day training program



Who should attend?
 All Job Reps are encouraged to attend this program, we suggest participants aim to attend a face-to-face program within 3 months of completing the Online module, or once every 3 years as a refresher.


Registering for the Foundations program
 Registrations are required to for you to participate. All Victorian Job Reps from any geographical location (metro or regional) are welcome to participate.


Paid Union Training Leave
 Depending on the entitlements in the applicable enterprise agreement, Job Reps may be eligible to receive paid union training leave from their employer to participate in these programs. If there is no entitlement and the employer will not provide paid training leave, Job Reps may be eligible to apply for an ANMF ‘loss of pay’ subsidy when taking leave without pay to attend.

Once registered, Job Reps will be provided with written confirmation, and a letter to be forwarded to their relevant NUM/MUM/Line Manager requesting leave to participate in union training.
