STEP UP TRAINING
The "STEP UP Training" online course will be held:
DATE: Thursday, April 15, 2021
TIME: 10:00am – 4:00pm
STEP UP: An intro to the BCGEU for all new Stewards and new Members
We hope everyone is healthy and staying safe. As time has passed on with social distancing still in effect, it has been decided that we will continue to do training sessions using Microsoft Teams. In order to participate, you will need access to a laptop or tablet and have either Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge as your internet browser. We will also need your current home email address (If not already updated with the Union).
As in the past, you will still be eligible for a leave of absence that needs approval from your supervisor.
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 and returning stewards 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.
If this is something you are interested in, please register by Monday, April 5, 2021.
At this time, the sessions will have limited seating so priority will be to registrants on a first come first serve basis. We will be happy to schedule another session if there are more registrants than spaces.
Together in Solidarity,
Celina Taylor, Staff Representative
