Unifor offers a number of introductory courses online via our e-learning platform. These online courses cover everything that a newly elected local executive needs to know to develop skills as a leader.
We offer two types of online learning options:
1. Mini Self-Directed Modules
Unifor offers a number of mini self-directed modules that allow members to get a taste of various subjects. These modules can take 30 minutes to 2 hours to complete.
Try our featured Mini Self-Directed Module: So you’re a union rep…now what?
Whether you have been a workplace rep for a while, are new to the role or considering running for a position, this 30-minute module will connect you with information you need.
The self-directed course covers:
- grievance handling,
- human rights, and
- health and safety.
Feel free to revisit the module whenever you like, and we hope you encourage others to check it out.

Online Local Union Request (LUR)
Local Unions can request online courses. The local should send an email to: @email outlining their needs and preferred dates.
Members, please contact your own local to make a request.

Course requirements for each participant
Each member / participant will need their own set up: A personal email address (No employer emails due to firewalls), a computer equipped with a web camera (webcam) as well as a microphone and speakers (or headphones), and a stable internet connection. A tablet (e.g., iPad) or phone can also be used but not ideal because of their size.
