Distribution of regional communications to branches, activists & members. Our information resources standard practice is: A link to the online weekly regional events calendar is tweeted at the start of the week. Any required additions/revisions to the calendar are made via an online version control system. This means the link to the calendar remains the same all week but the content of the calendar can be kept up to date. As not all UCU activists regularly view our Twitter page, we also email the calendar link to activists. This is sent on Thursday mornings and constitutes what was previously referred to as the Thursday ‘UCU Regional Weekly Update’. You do not require a Twitter account to view our Twitter page. Simply click on the link: https://twitter.com/UCUNorthern If you would like guidance on creating a Twitter account, UCU has a helpful ‘How to use Twitter’ guide available at http://goo.gl/XDgDWF Emma Alexander can also provide assistance.
