Niagara CUPE Council Summer School One

Jul 8, 2017 to Jul 9, 2017
Niagara Area Office, 110A Hannover Drive, Suite 101, Niagara
Saturday 9 am – 4 pm & Sunday 9 am – 12 pm
Clear Language

Unions rely heavily on the written word to inform members of their rights and to encourage them to participate in the workplace, the union and the community. But our communications aren’t always as effective as we would like. This workshop will help you develop clear writing and design skills to reach more members and make your local stronger.

Steward Learning Series

Understanding Mental Health

Learn about mental health and mental illness, explore our own attitudes and stereotypes about mental health, and learn tools for representing members when mental health is an issue.

Creating Psychologically Safe & Healthy Workplaces

What are the psychological hazards in a workplace? What is our role as stewards in making our workplaces psychologically healthy and safe?

Being An Ally for Equality

Championing human rights in the workplace and the union is an important role for stewards. But what does it really mean to be a good ally?

In response to the health concerns of our members and staff, CUPE has implemented a Scent-Free Policy at all of our workshops.  Scented products such as hair spray, perfume and deodorant can trigger reactions such as respiratory distress and headaches.  Facilitators and participants are asked to refrain from using scented products while attending our workshops and meetings.  Thank you for your cooperation.
