Current research confirms that mental health issues are prevalent in B.C. workplaces. Workers who experience mental health issues face incredible challenges in the workplace. Many are misunderstood, stigmatized, and under-utilized. From an organizational effectiveness and sustainability perspective, this is a significant business issue and one that requires attention. In a world where shortages of critical skills are, and will continue to be, a priority for many organizations, we cannot afford to allow the situation to continue. Workplace stress, bullying, harassment, and violence are increasingly the predominant issue for Canadians. Awareness of the staggering economic cost of workplace stress and related issues ($51 billion annually) grows steadily. Research also points to stress as a contributing factor in actual workplace accidents, injuries, and violence, making it a major factor in OH&S. This course looks at all of the various workplace psychosocial factors and works on developing and implementing an effective plan that will improve the psychological health and safety of a workplace. The course examines strategies that eliminate, minimize, and accommodate psychological health issues. Prerequisite: Health & Safety Level 1 recommended

How do we deal with workplace change - restructuring, automation, or new technology? What language best protects workers against unfairness in drug and alcohol testing or electronic monitoring? How do we prepare our membership and the union to deal with concession demands in pension and health benefits?

These are challenging times for our CUPE leadership. This week will be a chance for you to spend time with other leaders thinking about what you're bringing to your job and ways you can work even better with other Executive members in the interests of CUPE members. Leadership Essentials for Executive Members (9 hrs) Who am I as a leader? Who are we as a local union? How do we fit into the broader movement? Learn how to use the power of your elected position to build power in the union, create space for more members to get involved, and strengthen solidarity in the labour movement and in our communities. Leading as a Team (3 hrs) In this workshop, executive teams explore power and responsibility that comes with it, how we work in teams and how to balance our leadership styles to engage the membership and work effectively across diversity. Introduction to Ally Skills (3 hrs) Championing human rights in the workplace and the union is a vital role of local union leaders. But what does it really mean to act as a good ally? In this workshop, we will explore ways to reduce personal bias, challenge oppression, and act in solidarity with members from marginalized and equity-seeking groups. Labour History and the Class Struggle today (9 hrs) Unions have led the charge for shorter work weeks, health and safety legislation, collective bargaining rights, benefit and pension programs, and much more. Now unions are under attack. In this workshop, we will explore: The history of unions in Canada and key moments in CUPE's 50 year history; Why unions are under attack; Who benefits when workers' rights are weakened; What we can learn from our history to help us move forward and build our power at the bargaining table and in the political arena.

All workers face health and safety issues at work - injuries and occupational disease, workplace hazards, and stress. Many of these issues have a gender dimension - they affect women's bodies in particular ways. In this course, participants will discuss and learn how women's health (including reproductive health) is affected by toxic workplace substances, by work and tools that are often designed to fit men's bodies, and by workplace stresses such as violence and harassment. The course will provide the opportunity for you to discuss how the traditional gender-neutral approach to health and safety differs from the relatively new principle of the gender-sensitive approach. You can look forward to improving your skills in assessing workplace hazards and recommending appropriate corrective action. You will also learn about key health and safety principles such as: the precautionary principle, worker health and safety rights and strategies to improve committeee effectiveness. This course is intended for women who are health and safety committee members, and for women who want to take a more active role in health and safety at their workplace. This course meets the criteria for the eight-hour annual educational leave that OH&S committee members and worker representatives are entitled to under the Workers Compensation Act.
