Knowledge and education empowers workers, equips them with the skills and confidence to mobilize others, and strengthens their ability to respond to critical issues like job security, wages, working conditions and the preservation of our social programs. Change happens regardless of what we do about it. In a world where change is an inevitable constant, ongoing or life-long learning is the key to coping with this changing world and workplace.

The contacts you make at a labour school will be the basis of networks you build and draw on for years to come. Labour schools provide a forum for workers to meet other union activists, share experiences, learn from one another, strategize; and to realize the collective strength of labour. It is additionally an opportunity to realize the diversity within our movement and our community.

At every school, students discover to their surprise that the struggles and issues of other workers are very much like their own. This year’s School has something for everyone: I encourage you to enroll to build your capacity to deal with the challenges of our changing world.

At our fall school we will be offering the following courses: 

  1. Basic Shop Steward
  2. Advanced Shop Steward
  3. WCB
  4. Collective Bargaining
  5. Introduction to Election Volunteering
  6. Conflict Resolution
