In honour of Nelson Mandela's birthday, CUPE 960 wants to let our members know about some great educational opportunities. We have four members headed to an education opportunity this weekend in Niagara Falls to learn stewarding and Parliamentary procedure.
Are you a young worker looking for a promotion or to hone your skills? Are you an experienced worker looking to add to existing skills? CUPE and Mohawk College have partnered to offer you job specific learning opportunities for absolutely no cost. Take advantage of this opportunity to gain knowledge and experience!!!!
Although it is training like this that helps us become strong unionists and understand the important role the labour movement plays in improving our working conditions, this training can also enrich your knowledge in the workplace.
Lifelong learning is important and will help any individual whether or not they want to be active within CUPE 960. You can tailor your learning experience to your needs.
In addition to union specific Stewarding courses there is a wide array of learning opportunities that can be applied in your career or just may pique your interest. Courses on Social Media Training, Public Speaking, Human Rights, WSIB and Collective Bargaining just to name a few. All of these courses are applicable to any young worker who is just beginning their career or experienced worker looking to upgrade their skills.
Here is a list of upcoming educational opportunities. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0Any17VNZSgfydE05U2ZxSXRwenNCczFiWXhSZDBNcnc&output=html
These are just some of the opportunities offered by CUPE 960. These programs offer exceptional skills to future leaders. Learning encompasses governance, strategy, leadership, and people management skills through to accounting, marketing and social media.
All you need is time. Daily expenses and travel costs are covered and course fees are paid by your Local union. Contact any member of the Executive for more information. As Nelson Mandela said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
Updates from your executive and more!
