Saturday, October 26 - Sunday, October 27

9:00 AM - 4:30 PM both days

Venue TBD

Facilitator: Varinder Johal

This is the union’s key “introductory” course. If you have wondered what it means to be a union member, how the PSAC works, and what happens to your dues dollars, then Talking Union Basics provides answers to these questions. The course also introduces the collective agreement, your employee rights and your rights as a member of the PSAC. You will learn about the many opportunities to be active in the union and ways you can make a contribution to building strong locals in the B.C. region. It is recommended that members take Talking Union Basics first, as it provides the basic knowledge you need to get the most from other PSAC courses.

Apply for this course below. The application is deadline October 4, 2024.

Catchment: Northern BC
