Social Media

Facebook, Twitter, YouTube… How can they benefit my local? How are groups using social media for activism? How can I deal with people’s resistance? What are the guidelines for using social media? Explore questions like these and get lots of hands-on practice in CUPE’s Social Media workshop.

Duty to Accommodate
Jun 15, 2018 (9:00am-4:00pm) (25 spaces available)

Learn about the rights and responsibilities of both employers and unions under the Duty to Accommodate. In this workshop you will: • explore case law, key concepts and the prohibited grounds of discrimination under human rights law; • learn to make the case for accommodating workers and how to help union representatives and employers come up with appropriate accommodations for members; • Look at how we can break down stereotypes and stigma to support the accommodation process for those who need it.

In response to the health concerns of our members and staff, CUPE has implemented a Scent-Free Policy at all of our workshops. Scented products such as hair spray, perfume and deodorant can trigger reactions such as respiratory distress and headaches. Facilitators and participants are asked to refrain from using scented products while attending our workshops and meetings. Thank you for your cooperation.
