Area 08 - Step Up Training
46 7th Ave S Cranbrook, BC V1C 2J1 Canada
To ensure continuity of service during the COVID-19 pandemic, all BCGEU offices are closed and staff are working remotely to assist members. We recommend that you email the appropriate office if you require assistance.
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 jouney 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.
- Travel, meals and accommodation, if required, are also provided.
- Reasonable child and/or dependent care expenses may be reimbursed.
