This training manual was developed with our partners in Cameroon (FAWU) and Ghana (GAWU) as part of our project to train banana workers in those two countries. It contains a three stage training course for elected union representatives, comprising:

2. Taking up problems as a representative
3. Communication skills
These three courses are designed to be offered as a series for newly elected representatives and can be used as refreshers for existing ones. Facilitators are encouraged to involve experienced representatives in these courses so that they can share their knowledge.
The manual is available in three languages:
