Known as the “flagship” of CUPW education, this residential program inspires and strengthens existing and emerging union leaders
In three one-week sessions spread over several months, participants selected from across the country examine work, union, and social justice issues from a working class perspective.
The Union Education Program (UEP) is run by the national education department.
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.
