This class is IN-PERSON at the Maritime Labour Centre in Boardroom #3. Lunch will be provided.

This course is designed for union staff reps, officers and senior stewards who need to understand the BC Labour Code and its application. It will provide an overview of important sections of the code and the regulations, interpretations, and rulings that you need to know to be strategic and effective.

NOTE: Most workplaces in BC are provincially regulated for purposes of labour relations and subject to the BC Labour Relations Code. Provincially regulated sectors/industries include health, education, construction, retail, film, etc. This class would apply to workers and union representatives in those sectors/industries.

Check with your workplace to ensure if this class would apply to you.
