CUPW Education
Description: 

This course provides an opportunity for union activists to collectively analyze and work on the challenges involved in representing and mobilizing the membership.

It provides an opportunity for newer union activists to hone their skills and for long time leaders to reenergize.

Participants work on their communication and shop floor organizing skills and assess the challenges ahead. Included are sessions on face-to-face communications, CUPW and the media, building allies, and workplace organizing.

Duration: 
5 days

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.
