SLS - Duty of fair representation
Apr 6, 2019 (9:00am-12:00pm) (full - wait list only)
Learn about where stewards get their authority in the workplace, the duty of fair representation, and other labour laws that cover the workplace.
SLS - Conflict skills for stewards
Apr 6, 2019 (1:00pm-4:00pm) (full - wait list only)
Workplace conflict is stressful and weakens the union. Learn about the sources of workplace conflict and how to choose a response that fits the situation. Practice conflict communication skills that will help you resolve conflict at work and in the union.
SLS - Growing our mobilizing power
Apr 7, 2019 (9:00am-12:00pm) (full - wait list only)
Stewards can play a key role when the union needs to mobilize our members – whether it’s to support the bargaining committee, or stop the employer’s attempt to contract out our work. Learn basic mobilization theory and explore how stewards can tackle workplace problems in ways that engage more members and build the union’s power.

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.
