Dear CMG members,
CWA Canada and The NewsGuild are hosting an organizing summit in Toronto May 19-21.
CWA Canada will provide funding to allow several members who are in a union leadership role in their Local (bargaining committee, executive, steward, etc.) or who would like to take on a role organizing workers, both inside the workplace and across the industry, to take part in the summit.
The training will focus on practical organizing skills to strengthen Locals and win improvements, and it will build connections across the union.
We are asking that members who participate in this training also commit to joining the Member Organizing program, which involves meeting monthly with other members to share experiences and build skills to help organize their co-workers and non-union workers.
Please Register here, and indicate if you need financial assistance to attend.
Deadline to apply for financial support: 5 p.m. ET Monday, April 10
Deadline to register for event 5 p.m. ET Friday, April 21
The event will run Friday, May 19 until mid-day Sunday, May 21 – Members from outside the Toronto area may need to be released for travel on the Friday.
President, CWA Canada
