About the Training and Development Unit


Member education and mobilizing is at the heart of OPSEU’s vision of unionism. The Training and Development Unit works with staff and members all over OPSEU to:

  • write and pilot new courses for regional education
  • design sectoral leadership and development programs
  • support effective design and facilitation of meetings, conferences and forums
  • develop facilitation skills of members and staff for use at the local, regional and sectoral levels
  • support campaigns and bargaining with effective mobilizing education
  • work with locals and regions who want to strengthen their education programs
  • work with Equity Committees and caucuses to ensure the integration of equity into all OPSEU education programs
