Unionism 101: Moose Jaw Training
This new course is designed for any member who wants to learn more about SEIU-West. It is a beginner course for rank and file members who are not already shop stewards or unit officers. The course will touch on the basics of unions from where dues go to how members stay current on union activities to busting union myths. An introduction to the virtual bulletin board will be included and social media, political action and collective bargaining will be addressed. Basic information will be provided on anti-harassment, bullying and domestic violence at work. There will be a component that connects union principles with inclusivity and support for diversity as well. Truth and Reconciliation as well as the impact of climate change will be touched on in this exciting class. The goal is to reach everyday members and create an understanding of SEIU-West and what makes our union special.
