Before you start the Steward Learning series, you must complete the Introduction to Stewarding (9 hour) workshop. After that, you can start taking modules in the Steward Learning Series. All the modules are 3 hours. Please remember to bring your Stewarding handbook and Steward Learning passport.
SLS - Green action for stewards
Oct 26, 2019 (9:00am-12:00pm) (12 spaces available)
How will greening our workplaces impact workers? What does a green workplace look like? What action can we take to address environmental issues? Explore answers to these questions and more, from a steward’s perspective.
SLS - Literacy awareness
Oct 26, 2019 (1:00pm-4:00pm) (12 spaces available)
Literacy affects all of us at work. Learning new computer programs, understanding collective agreements, completing forms, or writing reports can all pose barriers for our members. Learn about how stewards can increase literacy awareness, and help make the union inclusive and accessible to members.
SLS - Notetaking
Oct 27, 2019 (9:00am-12:00pm) (12 spaces available)
Why do I have to take notes? What kind of notes should I take? Are my notes private? Learn answers to important questions like these, and practice notetaking.

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.
