Toronto – October 28, 2013 – Starting today, a new webCampus course called “Proud to Be Union!” is now freely available to all UFCW Canada members and their families.
Registration for the new course opens today, October 28, with the course offered until November 22, 2013. (The new Proud to Be Union! course is currently available in English only.)
PROUD TO BE UNION: With more than 250,000 members, you will find UFCW Canada members working mainly in the retail, manufacturing, and service sectors. The largest part of our membership works at some level of the food industry. But, UFCW Canada members are also work in hospitals, retirement homes, daycare facilities, hotels, and factories, as well as a wide range of other workplaces: from banks and taxis to funeral homes and laundries.
This course will help you to – understand what our union structure is from members to International organizations and the roles they play; understand what unions do for us as workers and as members of our communities; understand why unions are still useful historically and currently; and to show to participants what the anti-union employers don't want you to know.
