District 3 Next Generation Training 2017

February 9, 2017 - As a result of the Merger Agreement, the TWU, USW Local 1944 received a training commitment from the USW to train a contingent of the next generation of leaders.

 As part of fulfilling that commitment, District 3 will be hosting two-day training sessions in Edmonton and Burnaby.

March 13-14, 2017 - Edmonton, AB
Radisson Hotel Edmonton South, 4440 Gateway Blvd. Edmonton, AB T6H 5C2
9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

District 3 Office, 300-3920 Norland Ave, Burnaby, BC V5G 4K7
9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

The Next Generation program is open to Steelworkers in Local 1944 who are 30 years old or younger. The course will look at issues facing young workers in our union, and enable participants to move their issues forward.

These sessions will bring together young Steelworkers from a number of USW locals and will be a great opportunity to connect with activists from across the district.

Spaces in the workshops are limited and Local 1944 will be sending up to 10 members for each training session. If you are a Local 1944 member under 30, living in Alberta or British Columbia and are interested in participating, please fill out the application.

Applications close on Friday, February 17, 2017 at 12:00pm Pacific Time.

In solidarity,
