STEP UP: An intro to the BCGEU
8555 198A St Langley BC V2Y 0A9 Langley, BC V2Y 0A9 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.
This course is now being piloted with newly elected stewards.
STEP UP, our new 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 stand together for the changes you want to see at work and in our communities. Along the way, you will learn about your fundamental union rights and useful union tools and strategies for improving your work environment. Members will leave feeling more informed, confident and inspired to stay connected and engaged with the BCGEU. This is the first step on a learning pathway for stewards.
Your union leave-of-absence for this course will be sent to you shortly. Present this to your supervisor as soon as possible for approval.
Registration for this course is currently limited to newly elected stewards. The course will be offered to all members early next year.
