2019 CLC Pacific Region Winter School - Registration is Open!
We are proud to present our full course load from the United Way CLC curriculum at this year’s Winter School including: Labour Community Advocate Level 1, Level 2, and Unions in the Community.
Join us for a week in beautiful Harrison Hot Springs between January 13 – February 15, or recommend that your executive send another member for the benefit of your local.
Labour Community Advocate training equips union members with communications and interviewing skills as well as referral techniques so they can find effective solutions and community supports for issues that fall outside the scope of their collective agreements. Advocates are an incredible resource to have within your union – register today!
Campaign Profile: MoveUP
MoveUP has long been a partner of United Ways across British Columbia, leading the charge with their office staff and members to help fund programs that support vulnerable kids and isolated seniors in our communities.
Earlier this year Lori Mayhew accepted the United Way Thanks a Million Recognition Award on behalf of MoveUp and its members, but this year they’ve taken their campaign to a whole new level, becoming the first union to ever put forward a team for the UPS Plane Pull. Kim Chartier, Employee Campaign Chair for the MoveUP Office, jumped at the opportunity to raise money for the United Way in a fun, team-focused way. Together they pulled a Boeing 757 across the tarmac in only 54.72 seconds.
Well done, MoveUP! And thank you for championing our work to your members.
