CAW Education Schedule

The Fall schedule for upcoming education courses in Port Elgin is now available.  The schedule includes three new courses:

. Steps to Successful Campaigns;
. Women, Power and Politics;
. Members in the Middle.

Steps to Successful Campaigns will assist leadership, activists and union members in developing more effective campaigns whether they are focussed on workplace issues or on broader social change.

Women, Power and Politics invites women who have taken one or more of the Women's Activist, Aboriginal Worker of Colour or 4-week PEL programs to gain knowledge and tools to continue our struggle for equality, both in the union and in the broader political realm. 

The Members in the Middle course is designed for Team Leaders, Lead Hands, Head Cashiers and other members who hold a unionized position in their workplace that situates them between the majority of their membership and management.  This course aims to help members bridge the gap and develop strategies to effectively balance their role while building and strengthening the union.

Visit the CAW Education Department website (www.caw.ca/education) for more information on these and other great courses.
