LET Financial Officers
Once secretary-treasurers and trustees complete the Financial Essentials 1-day workshop, they will spend Day 2 learning about bookkeeping and auditing. Treasurers will learn how to use the CUPE electronic ledger, manage the local union’s funds and accounts, and prepare reports to the membership and the trustees. Trustees will learn how to properly perform an audit of the local union’s books, accounts, properties, and assets. At the end of this workshop, Trustees will be able to make recommendations to the local union to improve the local union’s financial health.

SLS – What’s our Duty
Apr 14, 2018 (9:00am-12:00pm) (24 spaces available)

Learn about where stewards get their authority in the workplace, the duty of fair representation, and other labour laws that cover the workplace.

SLS – Resolving Grievances without Going to Arbitration
The union wins most grievances without going to arbitration. In this module, stewards discuss the pros and cons of going to arbitration, and develop strategies and skills to settle grievances.

SLS – What a Stewards Need to Know about Arbitration
Although most grievances get settled, some go to arbitration. Learn about the arbitration process, terms, mediated settlements, and the role of the steward before and during arbitration.
