RCM workplace representatives are the backbone of the RCM

Representing and supporting members is a demanding role, which carries with it hard work and serious responsibilities. The role is very satisfying, especially when you are able to win a fair deal for our members. The skills that you gain as a workplace rep will assist you in your career and will also aid your personal and professional development. The role of the workplace representative can not be under estimated without those willing to give their time and energies the RCM would struggle to provide a service at the point of need. You will learn how to write a factual narrative account of your involvement in a specific incident either as a care giver or as a witness to a significant event.

How the RCM will support you
  • Assist in your professional development
  • Support you wherever possible
  • Provide specialist advice on employment and professional matters
  • Put you in contact with the hundreds of other members who also act as stewards for the RCM
  • Receive regular RCM Activists briefings by email with the latest information needed to fulfil your role
