Region 6 is offering a Virtual Educational as follows:

Stewards 1: Making a Difference in the Workplace

  • Tuesday, November 30, 2021  – 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, December 1, 2021 – 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

This updated version (March 2015) of Stewards 1 includes a more detailed description and history of OPSEU/SEFPO’s equity-seeking groups. The course continues to support stewards through a range of tools and practical activities. The key aims are to strengthen steward skills to orient a new employee to the union, have effective one-on-one conversations with a cross-section of members, develop a communications strategy to enlist diverse member involvement, and develop approaches to everyday workplace problems.

Throughout the course, participants are supported as they develop a profile of their members, clarify the tasks of the steward, find the resources and information in OPSEU/SEFPO, and understand the grievance process and their role in it. Stewards 1 is a prerequisite to Stewards 2 and must be completed before taking Stewards 2. Participants should bring their Collective Agreements to the course.

Basic Grievance Handling for Union Building

  • Saturday December 4, 2021 – 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 pm
  • Sunday December 5, 2021 – 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

This course is designed to examine the grievance process from a workplace organizing perspective. Grievances are opportunities to build the union. This hands-on course helps members analyze situations to decide whether a grievance is the best approach.

They will learn about different types of grievances and the remedies available through the grievance/arbitration process. They will develop technical skills in writing, processing grievances, and practice communication to assess whether a member’s rights have been violated. Participants should bring their Collective Agreements to the course.
