Steward Training 2022 (English)

Sep 12 - 13, 2022

For more than 10 years, CAPE has hosted its bi-annual Stewards’ Training Sessions. These sessions provide information on labour relation practices and policies that affect our members. The sessions are designed to help members understand their rights in relation to their collective agreements and the employer. There are two events in September - one in English (below) and another in French.

The sessions will be held in September 2022 and will be offered virtually to comply with Canadian Public Health guidelines and to respect CAPE’s position regarding the return-to-office. The sessions will be held in both official languages and are held over a one-day period. (One (1) French session and one (1) English session). The sessions are led by CAPE Labour Relations / Education Officers.

Minimum requirement: a minimum of five (5) members need to register for a course to be delivered online and we have a maximum capacity of fifteen (15) members per session.

The training is generally offered to stewards only. Please contact your dedicated CAPE Labour Relations Officer to find out more about becoming a steward or to enquire about the training.
