Requests received after this deadline will only be accommodated if there is room in the child care program. Cancellations are required and must be received 14 days in advance of your attendance at Winter School. Failure to cancel booked child care space(s) will result in a “no show fee” of $150.00. Please be aware that should unforeseen circumstances arise due to staffing issues, there is the possibility that child care coverage may be cancelled without advance notice. Participants wishing to utilize the child care program should keep alternate arrangements in mind, just in case.

Participants will learn the law with respect to duty of fair representation obligations, as well as the standard arbitral legal tests in relation to discipline, contract interpretation, and evidence. There will also be a legal research component, which will focus on locating the law and conducting efficient legal research. Participants will present an overview of a grievance with recommendations on whether to proceed to arbitration. Taught by both counsel and arbitrators, this course will provide the legal knowledge required for unions to determine what the critical issues are in individual grievances and to make informed decisions regarding the progress of grievances. One of the most difficult issues facing unions is whether to advance grievances to arbitration. It can be a legal minefield. Participants should have some experience in the arbitral referral process. A basic arbitration course is recommended. This course does not focus on preparation or presentation of a labour arbitration case. Participants wanting arbitration skills should take a Labour Arbitration Level 1 or 2 course.

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.
