Program

   
 
The BCFED Organizing Institute training covers the basics of union organizing to build power within our unions, and to organize new workers into unions. This is an opportunity to learn and practise leading effective organizing conversations with peers and experienced organizers from across our movement. We cover the elements of an organizing campaign, and the provincial and federal labour codes and how they apply to organizing. The course is designed to be an intensive training session that simulates the conditions of union organizing. Evening sessions are part of the core curriculum and participants will be expected to work as a group throughout the course, both inside and outside the classroom - just like in a real organizing campaign. Participation is encouraged from people who represent the diversity of our workforces.

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

This course is a good starting point for union activists and leaders looking to build their skills and perspectives to better engage and represent the diversity of their members. Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and discrimination against people with disabilities are used to divide workers.

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

The Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training course was developed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada to help people provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. MHFA teaches mental health first aid skills. The course does not train people to be therapists, counsellors, or mental health professionals. The philosophy behind MHFA is that a mental health crisis, such as suicidal and self-harming actions, may be avoided through early intervention. If a crisis does arise, an MHFA trained person in the workplace can take action that may reduce the harm that could result. Just as physical first aid is administered to an injured person before medical treatment can be obtained, MHFA is given until appropriate treatment is found or until the crisis is resolved. This course is ideal for union stewards or representatives, joint health and safety committee members, business representatives, local staff, first aid attendants, or anyone that wishes to increase their skills to support their fellow members.
