Human Rights Workshop Descriptions

Workshop A: Anti-Harassment and Bystander Training

0 spots remaining

When we are disrespected in our union, or when harm, harassment, and discrimination happen we are unsafe. We would not accept it from our supervisors and managers at work, and it is not ok in our union space. When we witness others being harmed, oppressed, or injured, we can intervene in safe and effective ways before, during, or after a harassing or violent situation. In this workshop, learn and practice how to intervene.

Workshop B: Ally Skills for Members

Effective allies are champions for human rights and equality. Explore what it means to be an ally, and ways that members can step up as allies in the workplace and the union.

This workshop explains the role that capitalism plays in workers’ lives and examines the links between local and global issues. We will explore how building solidarity with workers in other countries makes the labour movement stronger in Canada and around the world.

Workshop D: Growing Our Mobilizing Power

0 spots remaining

We all can play a role when the union needs to mobilize our members – whether it’s to support the bargaining committee or stop the employer’s attempt to contract out our work, or to champion human rights.  Learn basic mobilization theory and explore how you can tackle workplace problems and issues in ways that engage more members and build the union’s power.
