Fed elections: find out more about the work of a rep

Police Federation members are being encouraged to log on to a special Twitter chat highlighting the vital work of the workplace rep in the run-up to the July elections.

The hour-long @WeCops session, which gets underway at 9pm tomorrow night (30 June), will focus on  the incredible work carried out by the reps, how they are supported by the Federation and how officers can still get involved.

The chat is being hosted by Police Federation national chair John Apter tweeting as @PFEW_Chair and  board member and national wellbeing secretary Belinda Goodwin tweeting as @BelindaPfew.

The @WeCops sessions follow a three-question format and usually feature some interesting discussions.

South Wales Police Federation branch chair Steve Treharne urged members to get involved with the Twitter discussion.

He said:  "I would encourage our members on Twitter to log on to find out more about the elections and Fed reps.

"This is a great chance for members to ask any questions they might have about workplace reps, the training they receive and hopefully how to get involved themselves."

Elections for Fed reps are held every three years.

The next election process begins on Thursday (1 July) when nominations open for workplace representatives.
