Participants learn how to organize and mobilize union members into a powerful force for change. The course explores how to do union work in a way that builds the strength and courage of the membership. The skills learned can be applied to all the tough situations facing our members and our union – it's a course for today and tomorrow. This course dispels the myth of membership apathy.
Also known as the activist course.
Please note that the region (or the local) selects the courses that are offered. Not all courses are offered in a given year. In some cases, a course may not be available because it is not up to date or because it is being translated.
Specialized courses, such as the training of facilitators and of worker advocates, are offered on an as needed basis during each mandate. Typically, participants from two or more regions attend these national-level courses.
Members interested in union education should contact their region.
