We have 2 classes left for this month that still have a few seats available!

Effective Note Taking – Saturday September 24 from 10:00am to 12:00pm via zoom
This two hour workshop is designed to enhance the abilities of stewards, union representatives, and other worker advocates to take good and effective notes in any setting.
$20.00 for both VDLC Affiliates and Non-Affiliates

Investigations & Interrogations: Representing Members in Employers Interviews – Wednesday September 28 from 9:30am to 4:00pm via zoom
Picture this: you are a shop steward and get a request from an HR manager to sit in on an interview of a union member as part of an investigation; they won’t tell you or the worker what it’s about, and the manager is vague and accusatory and threatens to discipline the member if they do no cooperate. What can you do as a shop steward? How do you best represent the member and reduce the possibility of discipline? At discipline arbitrations the employer’s key evidence is their investigation. This course will help you, as a worker’s advocate, level the playing field by knowing the rights of the employees and limits of employers in their investigations.
$90.00 for VDLC Affiliates | $110 for Non-Affiliates
