Being An Ally for Equality

Championing human rights in the workplace and the union is an important role for stewards. But what does it really mean to be a good ally?

Understanding Mental Health

Learn about mental health and mental illness, explore our own attitudes and stereotypes about mental health, and learn tools for representing members when mental health is an issue. 

Creating Psychologically Safe & Healthy Workplaces

What are the psychological hazards in a workplace?   What is our role as stewards in making our workplaces psychologically healthy and safe?

Mediating Member to Member Conflict

Helping members resolve day-to-day conflicts builds solidarity in the union. In this module, stewards practice coaching members who are in conflict with other members, and work with a four-step approach to basic mediation techniques. 

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.

Please provide in writing to by the registration deadline your cancellation request. Ensure you provide your local number, address and contact numbers. Please note, this workshop may be cancelled due to low registration or other reasons.
