This course gives experienced stewards an opportunity to assess their strengths and work on the areas they want to improve.
Participants review grievance investigation basics and practise face-to-face communications, including meetings with management. Other topics include self-care, strategies for shop floor mobilization and recruiting new stewards, the duty of fair representation, the rights of temporary employees and OCREs, and the STDP.
This course is for experienced stewards.
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.
