Course Code : 5UIC
The labour movement has always played a strong role in the social change movement. As part of the United Way and CLC Labour Community Advocate Program, the course provides training on community involvement and working with community partners as a board, committee or coalition partner. Participants learn how to organize around and participate in community social service issues, while exploring the ways in which unions and other labour bodies can help build resilient and respectful communities. The tools provided help strengthen labour’s community presence and develop new activists and support for issues based campaigns. Participants are also trained to identify community issues where unions can play a role through collective bargaining or social action.
