How To Run a Local - Labour Relations ~ Calgary

DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION: March 19, 2019

In this workshop, Local Executives and District Representatives will develop a deeper understanding of the dispute resolution and Duty to Accommodate processes through two interactive scenarios. In the first scenario, participants will explore the Employer investigation meeting process, including the Local’s role and UNA’s legal obligations in advocating for members. This scenario will then take us through the process of filing and resolving a grievance. Scenario two will explore the Employer’s Duty to Accommodate and will walk participants through the typical issues that arise during the accommodation process.

This workshop is designed for Local Executive members and District Representatives. It is one workshop in the three-part How to Run a Local series: Administration, Finance, and Labour Relations. Please bring your (charged) smartphone and the United Nurses of Alberta mobile app, if possible, or a paper copy of your Collective Agreement.

PIA Advocacy Conference: Our Public Services: Protecting and Revitalizing in Uncertain Times

With a provincial election on the horizon, conversations about the oil industry and the economy dominate political discourse and the media in Alberta. As important as economic issues are, political parties have lost the focus on public services, that are so important to the health and well-being of Albertans. The progressive movement has made vital gains such as the newly introduced $15 minimum wage, $25-a-day child care, and the carbon tax. However, these programs are under threat by belt-tightening conservatives who are planning massive cuts and privatization of public services to balance the budget, rather than focusing on common sense solutions like fair taxation. This is why now more than ever we need to shift the public conversation and take action to protect and revitalize our public services, creating the conditions for greater fairness, justice, and equality for all Albertans. Public Interest Alberta’s 13th Annual Advocacy Conference will explore these topics and more. Join activists and advocates from across the province in Edmonton April 4 and 5 to pursue bold directions toward a better Alberta for all. Visit https://www.pialberta.org/conference2019 to register.
