Area 12 Step Up
4600 Lazelle Ave Terrace, BC V8G 1S5 Canada
STEP UP, our introductory (ONLINE or IN PERSON), one-day course for new stewards and new members, 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 member or steward. Along the way, you will learn about your fundamental union rights and useful union tools and strategies for getting started in your role. This course is a great first step on our new learning pathway for new stewards and members seeking more information about their union.
· A union-paid leave-of-absence is provided for this course (if you are scheduled to work)
