An invitation to active Union Stewards: The PSAC Prairie region will be hosting a series of 1-day “Building the Union through Steward’s Work” events that include an evening meeting to develop the Prairies 2016-2018 Regional Education Plan.

Who should come: The Building the Union through Steward’s Work events are for active union stewards who want to develop their union-building skills and share collective solutions to workplace issues.  Participants will also draw on their steward experiences to help create the 2016 – 2018 Prairies Regional Education Plan.

What we’ll be doing: During the day stewards will learn more about effective communication techniques, circles of influence, and strategies for resolving workplace issues.  In the evening stewards will be joined by other union activists and together we will identify the key elements of the Prairies Education Plan for the next three years.

Dates, Locations and Expenses: Stewards are invited to attend the event closest to their work/home location only.
