Upcoming VDLC Course Offerings

October 1, 2017

The Vancouver & District Labour Council has 2 more courses scheduled before the end of the year.

 

Grievances: Initiation to Arbitration is an in-depth course that will see participants tracking a grievance from initiation to arbitration with a focus on how all steps rely on the foundations of a good initial investigation, understanding of the collective agreement, and development of a sound theory and clear remedy.  In other words, what is the grievance issue and what is the solution?

 

Participants will learn about technical issues, privilege, a steward's or officer's duty of fair representation, precedent, determinants in advancing or withdrawing a grievance at various stages, when to seek outside legal advice and what an arbitrator is looking for.

 

Date:

Wednesday, Thursday & Friday

November 22, 23 & 24

9:30 AM to 4:00 PM

 

Location:

Maritime Labour Centre

1880 Triumph Street

Vancouver, BC

 

Effective Grievances is a course designed for newer union activists and stewards, or as a refresher for those with more experience. Learn the difference between a complaint and a grievance, when to start a grievance, how to support and advocate for your members in the grievances and best practices. Participants will learn the fundamentals for successful grievance outcomes.


Date:

Saturday, December 2

9:30 AM to 4:00 PM

 

Location:

Maritime Labour Centre

1880 Triumph Street

Vancouver, BC

 

Though ideally suited for Local 517's shop stewards and/or Grievance Committee members, anyone interested in attending either course is invited to let Membership Trustee Sarah Pilgrim know.

 

UPDATE: Grievances: Initiation to Arbitration is now full.  Let Sarah know if you would like to be added to the waitlist.
