Level 2 of Solidarity Skills familiarizes participants with the fundamentals of conflict mediation.
It builds on what participants learned during the Level 1 course about dealing with conflict in the union.
Participants review the conflict mediation process and practise dealing with a conflict from its beginning to final resolution.
Conflict resolution models such as restorative circles are also explored.
Participants should have taken Solidarity Skills Course – Level 1.
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.
