  • By the end of this module, participants will be able to determine what the role of a shop steward is and is not, list the legal protections and rights that shop stewards have, understand where shop stewards fit, structurally, in our union and identify in what ways a shop steward can help build a strong worksite.

  • This course is the union’s key “introductory” education event. If you have wondered what it means to be a union member, how PSAC works, and what happens to your dues dollars, then Talking Union Basics provides answers to these questions. The course also introduces the collective agreement, your employee rights and your rights as a member of the PSAC. You will learn about the many opportunities to be active in the union and ways you can make a contribution to building strong locals in the Prairie region.

  • Participants will explore conflict resolution tips that can be used in the workplace and will practice holding meetings, interviewing complainants and documenting important facts. Participants will also brainstorm ways to deal with workplace problems outside the grievance procedure.

  • This two-day course for union stewards will develop participants’ knowledge, skills, and confidence in effectively solving problems at the workplace. A major portion of time will be spent on the relevant technical skills i.e. identifying, investigating, writing up, and presenting grievances.
