Union Education

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.
