Re: STEP UP Education Session
You are invited to join us and your fellow BCGEU members for a day of education at the Peace River Area Office or via Zoom.
STEP UP, our 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 stewards will have priority registration. 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.
In person seating is limited to 22 participants. There will also be zoom participation available. Please indicate in the Additional Information of the RSVP if you would be attending in person or via Zoom.
