Area 02 STEP UP Training October 2019
1650 Terminal Ave N 106 Nanaimo, BC V9S 2L4 Canada
STEP UP, our new introductory, one-day course for new and returning stewards, 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. 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 leave-of-absence is provided for this course.
