This course raises the awareness of CUPW members about workplace harassment and violence.
Members are provided with an overview of workplace harassment and violence. The different responsibilities employers, the union, and individual members have in creating a harassment and violence-free environment are explained.
Participants explore the avenues for redress available to members who are being harassed, and work on their assertiveness skills.
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.
