PD Ports-Unite seal learning deal
UK-based ports company PD Ports has signed a 'Learning Agreement' with Unite the Union (Unite) for its sites across the North East of the country. The deal aims to make learning and development opportunities accessible to all employees while encouraging them to seek essential functional skills support.
The agreement forms part of a nationwide initiative established by Unite, which is Britain and Ireland’s biggest trade union, and intends to make the opportunities available to employees regardless of Unite involvement.
In the future, the deal is expected to be rolled out to other areas of PD Ports, who says it is committed to ensuring that it offers these sorts of opportunities continuously for all staff, helping to build a company that is progressive and resilient.
Commenting on the venture, Russ McCallion, PD Ports’ HR director, said: "This agreement will look to help those that need additional support with essential skills as well as employees wanting to expand their knowledge to help them progress further within their career, gaining qualifications and ultimately contributing to improving the performance of the business.
"By working together with Unite, we can further support personal development and assist the learning of those people that make our business great, helping them to acquire essential skills that they need to live."
Unite learning organiser Mick Simpson commented: "This is just the latest example of how Unite works in partnership with companies to promote work-based, lifelong learning opportunities that boost skills across the organisation both personally and professionally."
