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 advanced training is designed for participants with basic level knowledge of non-union organizing and campaigns. This is an advanced course. Participants will be provided with an overview of the provincial and federal labour codes and updates to the labour code; an overview of diversity, intersectionality, and community engagement strategies; the needs of equity seeking groups; and some of the most common barriers to engagement. Course participants will take a deep dive into labour law and precedent-setting cases from the B.C. Labour Relations Board, and how these decisions impact the way we organize workers. Leading labour union organizers will facilitate sections on approaches to preparing evidence for unfair labour practices and strategies to protect workers from retaliation during organizing drives. We will look at contemporary examples of inclusive organizing approaches, navigating division in organizing campaigns, and concrete strategies and practices to build more inclusive organizations and organizing campaigns. This course is being presented by the BC Federation of Labour and Union Cooperative Initiative.

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.

The labour movement has always played a strong role in the social change movement. As part of the United Way and CLC Labour Community Advocate Program, the course provides training on community involvement and working with community partners as a board, committee or coalition partner. Participants learn how to organize around and participate in community social service issues, while exploring the ways in which unions and other labour bodies can help build resilient and respectful communities. The tools provided help strengthen labour's community presence and develop new activists and support for issues based campaigns. Participants are also trained to identify community issues where unions can play a role through collective bargaining or social action.
