CUPE offers a wide variety of workshops and different ways for members to access union education.
Check CUPE’s online workshop calendar regularly to see what’s new! Current topics include anti-racism, bargaining, stewarding and financial officer orientations, with more on the way.
Additionally, each year, CUPE Ontario organizes the Fall/Spring School*, which is open to all members. This is a good opportunity to learn more about the labour movement in a formal setting. These are 2 or 4 day-long courses. In the past, courses have included:
- Health & Safety Series: Preventing Mental, Injuries at Work; Violence Prevention in the Workplace
- Labour Law
- Women Speaking Up
- Political Action and Activism
- Say No to Harassment
Members are eligible for expense reimbursement. Let us know if you are interested in participating.
*This year the Fall School 2020 and the Spring School 2021 have been cancelled due to current events surrounding COVID-19.
