This course will look at economic, political, social forces at play between union and management. It will examine the roles and rights of each group and the different types of union/management relationships and styles. We will look at the power, bias, and privilege dynamics between union and management and how we can communicate effectively. We will focus on problem solving - understanding issues, developing strategies, finding and presenting facts and argument, finding areas of agreement, building solutions, implementing and maintaining solutions. Participants can expect lots of participation, interaction, and role-plays along with practical skills and tools for communication, analysis, strategy and critical thinking.

This course is a good starting point for union activists and leaders looking to build their skills and perspectives to better engage and represent the diversity of their members. It is open to all union activists. Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and discrimination against people with disabilities are used to divide workers. Participants will focus on the role unions can play in advancing equity and changing how we address systemic discrimination. Together we will identify what needs to change, how to challenge employers, as well as how to engage and represent workers through an equity lens. There is a scholarship available from Community Savings Credit Union for this course. Interested applicants should contact Community Savings or download the scholarship information package and application form from our website: http://canadianlabour.ca/labour-education.

The course stars with the origin of antichretic loans and compound interest in the historical record at ~3000 BCE, examines the foundations of modern economic theory, and looks at the current implications for union members in the Canadian context.

This course is designed to equip participants with tools and strategies for successful work reintegration outcomes. Participants will explore leading research and learn the principles of good work reintegration practices and the duty to accommodate. The course has a strong focus on the analysis and interpretation of human rights obligations and particularly the duty to accommodate. Barriers to successful work reintegration are addressed with a focus on attitudinal barriers and their elimination using the social model of disability and therapeutic return to work principles. An in-depth comparison between older methods of disability management and the newer, progressive disability prevention model is presented and participants learn about the paradigm shift from management to prevention.

All workers face health and safety issues at work - injuries and occupational disease, workplace hazards, and stress. Many of these issues have a gender dimension - they affect women's bodies in particular ways. In this course, participants will discuss and learn how women's health (including reproductive health) is affected by toxic workplace substances, by work and tools that are often designed to fit men's bodies, and by workplace stresses such as violence and harassment. The course will provide the opportunity for you to discuss how the traditional gender-neutral approach to health and safety differs from the relatively new principle of the gender-sensitive approach. You can look forward to improving your skills in assessing workplace hazards and recommending appropriate corrective action. You will also learn about key health and safety principles such as: the precautionary principle, worker health and safety rights, and strategies to improve committee effectiveness. This course is intended for women who are health and safety committee members, and for women who want to take a more active role in health and safety at their workplace.

This course is for union members wanting to improve their WCB advocacy skills. Participants will assist an injured worker in a mock appeal where their injury has been denied by the WCB. The class will review how to seek a doctor's opinion in support of the injured worker, how to question the worker at an appeal hearing, and how to present argument regarding occupational injury and disability. Participants are encouraged to discuss the specific types of work-related injuries and benefits that their members are having denied or not dealt with properly, and emphasis will be placed on how to apply one's advocacy skills to those types of cases. At the end of the week, the class will participate in a mock hearing of the Workers' Compensation Appeal Tribunal.
