This three-day course will combine the Talking Union Basics and Grievance Handling Courses.

The first day will be dedicated to 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. If you have previously taken the Talking Union Basics Course, you may sign up for Day 2 and 3 only.

Day 2 and 3 are geared towards union stewards and develops 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 ie: identifying, investigating, writing up, and presenting grievances.

Who:      Only Open to members in Lethbridge/Medicine Hat areas.

Where:   Lethbridge/Medicine Hat, (City/Venue TBA)

When:    May 3-5, 2019 – 9:00 am-5:00 pm daily
