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 focus on problem solving - understanding issues, developing strategies, finding and presenting facts and argument, finding areas of agreement, building solutions, implementing and maintaining solutions.

The Labour Community Advocate (formerly Union Counselling) Program is a Canadian Labour Congress training program delivered by Labour Programs and Services staff and funded through the United Way Centraide. This program provides participants with information about the social issues faced by working people and the resources available in their community. Participants are trained in communication skills, interviewing and referral techniques so they can assist union members to find the appropriate resources. The Labour Community Advocate Training helps workers to find effective solutions and community support for issues outside the scope of their collective agreements. Labour Community Advocates are often the first contact for co-workers with problems and are a valuable resource within any union. There is a scholarship available for this course through the B.C. Federation of Labour, in partnership with the Victoria Labour Council. Interested applicants should contact the BCFED or download the scholarship information package and application form from our website: https://canadianlabour.ca/who-we-are/labour-education/.

Each year in Canada, one in five people will experience a mental health problem or illness. Over a lifetime, that number increases to 1 in 3. The impact to our economy is a cost of more than 51 billion dollars. The objective of this workshop is to provide participants with the tools to create strategies that will support workers with mental health issues, individually and collectively. We will start with a full day discussion of Workplace Bullying & Harassment then continue with a full day of Prevention of Violence in the Workplace. These two days will lay the foundation to delve deeper into the Psych Health & Safety Management System. A Psychological Health and Safety Management System can help an organization identify hazards that can contribute to psychological harm to the worker. It is a preventive approach that assesses your workplace practices and identifies areas for improvement. A voluntary CSA Standard (Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace) has been developed to help organizations work towards this vision as part of a process of continual improvement. In this course participants will: " Learn about what constitutes Bullying & Harassment and Prevention of Violence (in provincially regulated workplaces), and how these impact the workplace; " Identify organizational factors that contribute to mental illness; " Learn how to apply the CSA Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace as an effective strategy to create a workplace environment supportive of mental health; " Learn about other resources available to workplaces.
