To All BCGEU Stewards and Local Executives

 Re Step UP Training

STEP UP, our new introductory, 1-day course, will introduce new and returning stewards 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. You 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.

 A union paid leaves-of-absence is provided for this course. Travel, meals and accommodation, if required, are also provided. Lunch will be provided for the days you are in class.

 Date: January 28, 2020
