Courses Offered

 PERSON: Facing Management Effectively

Effectively examines the economic, political and social forces at play between union and management. We will focus on problem solving – understanding issues, developing strategies, finding and presenting facts and arguments, finding areas of agreement, building solutions, implementing and maintaining solutions. Participants can expect participation, interaction and roleplaying along with practical skills and tools for communication, analysis, strategy and critical thinking.

This course is for all workers, including non-Indigenous activists, to learn the history of Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island (North America). Its purpose is to build meaningful, long-term relationships with and among Indigenous peoples inside and outside of our workplaces, with the aim of supporting decolonization of indigenous peoples and increasing indigenous peoples’ representation at work and in the union.

The Labour Community Advocate (formerly Union Counselling) course is a co-developed training program shared by the CLC and United Way. This program helps unions develop an internal mechanism to care for their members agreements by providing participants with information about how to access lifesaving social service resources available in their community. Participants are trained in equity, communication skills, interviewing, and referral techniques so they can assist union members. Labour Community Advocates are a valuable resource within any union.

This introductory course will help raise awareness for participants about mental health issues facing workers in today’s workplace.  Activists will develop a range of strategies to specifically support, accommodate and represent members with mental health challenges at work.  We will look at the myths around mental illness, challenging stigmas and what role the union can play in making our workplaces and unions more inclusive of members with psychological disabilities.  We will develop action plans to take on systemic factors affecting mental health through advocacy, bargaining and political action.
