Region 6 is offering two July Educationals in Sudbury:

Political Action for Union Activists – Event #66828

What do you know about the political climate in your municipality, Ontario, Canada? How do you get insights into the current issues in your community? What is your confidence level when speaking to someone about a possibly controversial political issue? Can you use your power of communication to raise awareness of a subject that is making an impact on your life? Do you know the players in the political arena? How do you find the right persons to speak with? These are some of the topics that will be covered in this newly updated course. You will share insights, and get the tools needed to build your union and communities. You will also develop strategies for engaging your members, campaigning, and lobbying politicians.

Dates and Times:
Tuesday July 19, 2022  – 9:00 am to 4:30 pm
Wednesday July 20, 2022  – 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
Location: The Clarion Hotel, Sudbury

Follow the Money: A First Course in Public Economics – Event #66829

Are you worried about your economic future and that of your children? Are you frustrated by the growing gap between the soaring wages of CEO’s and the stagnant take-home pay of your family? As a union member and a public employee, are you surprised that you have somehow become “the problem”?
Follow the Money: A First Course in Public Economics takes you on a guided tour of today’s economy. We’ll examine who runs it and who doesn’t. We’ll discuss what this all means for people, public services, and the planet. We’ll look at how economics is tied up with politics and the role played by corporate power and public relations. Lastly, we’ll draw some inspiration from folks who are fighting for a fair economy and identify what we can do to be part of those struggles in our locals and communities. The course has six modules that can be taught separately in meetings or local events

Dates and Times:
Wednesday July 20, 2022  – 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm
Thursday July 21, 2022  – 9:00 am to 4:30 pm
Location: The Clarion Hotel, Sudbury
