Workplace bullying and harassment can compromise the mental and physical health of workers. To address this health and safety issue, this course will equip participants with the knowledge and confidence to undertake thorough and impartial investigations into allegations of workplace bullying and harassment as defined in health and safety law and policy. Participants’ skills will be developed and practised through role play in planning, research, interviewing techniques, and analysis in order to conduct impartial investigations. Particular attention will be paid to the emotional and sensitive effect that alleged bullying and harassment has on the workplace. Thorough and impartial investigations are necessary to not only resolve the complaint, but also to educate and ensure proper recommendations follow to prevent further incidents from happening. Prerequisite: Bullying & Harassment recommended

Special emphasis is placed on evidence, examination and cross examination, the opening statement and final argument. You will also discuss current trends and cases dealing with the arbitration process.

This course is designed for experienced shop stewards, local union leaders and union staff who want to transform how members engage with their union and how their union engages with members. This course will train particpants on the three-step approach to effective member engagement (Go, Listen, Build) and connect it to a three-stip approach for building an active membership (one-on-one communication, taking action on worksite issues, and designing a strategy and plan to win). This training is particularly helpful for unions with upcoming contract negotiations, a backlog of unresolved grievances, a particularly disengaged membership, or a diverse membership that is not reflected in local leadership. Each participant will leave the training with a worksite specific plan for creating an engaged and active membership as well as a series of measurable goals to evaluate outcomes.
