Human Rights are Workers’ Rights (1-week course)

5 Days

Our week-long human rights program is a must for leadership and activists in our growing, diverse union.  The program is rooted in class struggles – learning how racism, sexism, homo/transphobia, and disability issues operate in our workplace and in the context of the broader capitalist economy – and learning how movements for equality have always been tied to worker’s rights and struggles.

This program combines our three-day Human Rights program, our one-day Duty to Accommodate course, an expanded session on workplace harassment, and a new section on human rights tribunals / legislation. 

Participants will become familiar with Unifor structures, resources, education programs for advancing human rights and equity struggles in the workplace.
