    BCGEU Lower Mainland Area Office in Vancouver, BC, Canada

    Local 803 Enhanced Stewards Training

    Agenda: This all-day training will give Local 803 Stewards a chance to review a few of the basics and get a more in-depth knowledge in some important areas of your work. Want to improve facing management assertively? More effective at Joint Labour-Management Meetings? Ever ask yourself – what happens at arbitration and why do some grievances end up there and others don't? We will spend the day on these topics and have time to talk about some of your workplace issues too.

    Registration may be limited, so be sure to register right away.

    Please RSVP (including Leave of Absence and/or Travel requirements) by March 22, 2017. Lunch will be provided so please advise if you have any food allergies. Parking information available.
