This purpose of this course is to familiarize members of local executives with their roles and responsibilities.
Participants begin by examining the responsibilities and tasks of local executive members as set out in the CUPW constitution. The course includes sessions on communication skills, union-management meetings, rules of order, finances, and the development and execution of a work plan.
This course is for new members of local executives.
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.
