Building Strong Local Unions

5 Days

Having a strong local union is important in fighting back against some of the challenges currently facing Unifor members across the country.

In this week-long program we will use a series of new and innovative approaches to explore what makes a local union strong.  We’ll consider leadership, activism, membership engagement and building strong community links.  We’ll also look at the role technology can play in communication with members and our work on campaigns through hands-on activities.

This program uses new approaches to education that are designed to engage, challenge, motivate, inspire and educate new as well as seasoned activists, standing committee members and elected leadership – anyone who has an interest and commitment to strengthening their local union.
