Upcoming Events

Here are our upcoming events

  • As neighbourhood branches are being set up across Glasgow, the union is building and consolidating Member Defence Teams locally to fight and win improvements for our members. 
    Over the coming months, there will be fortnightly 1.5 hour long work sessions bringing together Member Defence Teams located in the Southside of Glasgow. These sessions aim to:
    • Provide support on ongoing cases 
    • Give MD teams time to discuss and plan next steps on ongoing cases
    If local Member Defence teams do not have any ongoing cases, these work sessions will be used for training and outreach. 
    If you are a Living Rent member who lives in the Southside of Glasgow, not in a branch but wanting to get involved in Member Defence work, get in touch and come along!

    Thursday 21st January
    Thursday 4th February
