  • Area 05 STEP UP!

    Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at 09:00 AM
    Area 05 Office in Kamloops, BC, Canada

    STEP UP, our new introductory, one-day course, will introduce you to the BCGEU, explore our common values, union culture, and our diverse community of members. Through stories of solidarity and courage, you will gain the strength and support you need to begin your journey as a new or returning steward. Along the way, you will learn about your fundamental union rights and useful union tools and strategies for getting started in your role. Newly elected and returning stewards will leave feeling more informed, confident and ready to support a member through a Step 1 grievance. This course is the first step on our new learning pathway for stewards.

    Paid leaves from work, accommodation and travel, if required, will be paid for by the Union. Lunch will be provided for the days you are in class. Please let us know of any dietary restrictions.
