Local Executive Training

Leadership Basics for Executive Members - Who am I as a leader? Who are we as a local union? How do we fit into the broader movement? Learn how to use the power of your elected position to build power in the union, create space for more members to get involved, and strengthen solidarity 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.

Registration fee is $75 for affiliated locals and $100 for non-affiliated locals. Please make cheque payable to: Eastern Great Lakes District CUPE Council and mail c/o Tammy Bentley, Treasurer, 1105 Pinewood Place, Kingston, ON K7N 1Y4
