The Unionism on Turtle Island course will bring together PSAC members from across the Prairie region for an intense five days of talking, learning, laughing, questioning and supporting each other. Participants will explore the history of oppression and resistance, Aboriginal issues at the bargaining table, creating a representative workforce, and opening the union to Aboriginal activists.
