Report - our reps' magazine
Report magazine is one of the key resources for our reps, containing regular updates on issues such as employment law, recruitment and organisation, and health and safety.
We usually publish eight issues each year and send it to everyone who's recorded as a rep on our membership database, either by post or as an email link.
Not receiving it?
If you're a rep but you don't receive Report, we probably haven't been told about your rep status. You can contact our membership department direct (making sure you include your membership number). Better still, ask your branch secretary or M&R secretary to send your negotiating team a full, up-to-date list of your branch officers and reps. You can find details of your negotiating team on the 'union contacts' page.
Prefer to receive the PDF version?
If you're already receiving Report by post but would rather have the email version, you can set this up online: just go to your member welcome page, select the option to change your settings, and go to the 'magazines' tab.
