What will you get out of the seminar?

  • An understanding of the roles and obligations of both the management representatives and the employee representatives in the SU.
  • An understanding of the way in which the SU can be a value-adding forum for the whole workplace.
  • Inspiration for the practical work of the SU through exercises and exchange of experience with other members.

The seminar will aim to make you aware of the part you play as a member of a SU and give you a fundamental understanding of the committee’s work and tasks. You will also gain an insight into the potential as well as the limitations of a collaborative effort, and you will be introduced to actions and efforts that might improve a collaboration. The specific content will be organized around the following headlines and themes:

  • The duty to inform (what, where, when).

The tasks of the SU

  • What themes could and should we work with?
  • How could and should we work with them?
  • How do we mobilize our colleagues? SU’s duty to inform.

The successful SU collaboration

  • A positive forum for discussion and collaboration (how do we create a great collaborative environment?)
  • The SU meetings (how do we ensure a constructive dialogue and successful meetings?)
  • Relations and different abilities (what can we expect from each other?)
  • Conflicts and shared goals (what do we want to focus on?)


What will the seminar be like?

  • Introductory presentations by the teacher – to help you understand the Cooperation Agreement and the committee’s technical framework.
  • Group work – introductions followed by exercises that will train your skills in putting the Cooperation Agreement to use.
  • Individual exercises – clarifying the values and intentions of the cooperation, and how you can apply them to your own workplace.
  • Dialogues and discussion – giving all participants the opportunity to exchange experiences.
