The BCFED Organizing Institute training covers the basics of union organizing to build power within our unions and to organize new workers into unions. This is an opportunity to learn and practise leading effective organizing conversations with peers and experienced organizers from across our movement. We cover the elements of an organizing campaign, and the provincial and federal labour codes and how they apply to organizing. This is a hands-on course that simulates the conditions of a non-union organizing campaign and is designed for new labour activists interested in expanding their skills to build worker power. Participants should be prepared for a mix of course work, small groups, and real time practice. This course is being presented by the BC Federation of Labour and Union Cooperative Initiative.

This course is designed for experienced shop stewards, local union leaders and union staff who want to transform how members engage with their union and how their union engages with members. Go, Listen, Build) and connect it to a three-step approach for building an active membership (one-on-one communication, taking action on worksite issues, and designing a strategy and plan to win). This training is particularly helpful for unions with upcoming contract negotiations, a backlog of unresolved grievances, a particularly disengaged membership, or a diverse membership that is not reflected in local leadership. Each participant will leave the training with a worksite specific plan for creating an engaged and active membership as well as a series of measurable goals to evaluate outcomes.

Transforming Conflict into Union Activism approaches conflict in a novel way. It recognizes that conflict isn't always negative but that it is the outcome of the conflict that is negative or positive. The course will teach participants how to listen to people involved in a conflict, get to the root causes of a conflict, and how to coach people involved in a conflict to identify shared interests. Participants will learn how to use those shared interests to help people involved in a conflict find solutions and turn the conflict and shared interests into union activism.
