SFL/CLC Spring School

SFL/CLC Spring School - Labour Education Makes Our Movement Stronger

May 7 - 11, 2018 (Elkridge Resort & Conference Centre - Waskesiu, SK)

Labour education builds solidarity and knowledge.  It teaches skills that unions need when representing their members and defending their rights.

The SFL/CLC Spring School is here to help your union train the next generation of local activists or expand the skills of today's leaders and activists.

Unions need to connect with a new generation of working people. They can do this by being better bargainers and better advocates for their members at work, as well as better political activists for everyone who works to support themselves and their families.

The courses offered by the Spring School are:

  • Getting Started Becoming a Union Activist
  • Labour Law
  • Mental Health in the Workplace
  • Unionism on Turtle Island
  • Human Rights are Workers Rights
  • Facing Management Effectively 

Descriptions of these courses can be viewed at:  www.canadianlabour.ca/labour-education
