As activists in our unions, we often ask why members are not more involved. This stream will include workshops from our Local Executive Training, Steward Learning Series, and Anti-Racism CUPE, to ask different questions: Who is involved and who isn't and what might be some reasons why? Learn leadership essentials like how to use the power of your elected position to strengthen solidarity in the union, in the labour movement and in our communities.

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.
