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.

Bring a copy of your collective agreement and a calculator as we work with different strategies and tactics for effectively facing today's challenges at the bargaining table. How do we deal with workplace change - restructuring, automation, or new technology? What language best protects workers against unfairness in drug and alcohol testing or electronic monitoring? How do we prepare our membership and the union to deal with concession demands in pension and health benefits? This is a course for students who have taken Collective Bargaining Level 1 and have some experience on a bargaining committee.

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.

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.
