The Edmonton branch of the Industrial Workers of the World and the Alberta Public Interest Research Group are pleased to announce this years Organiser Training. The IWW’s Organiser Training is a hands-on, two day intensive workshop where participants learn the basic tools
needed to successfully organize your workplaces so that you can collectively and directly address workplace issues. Participants will learn all the steps needed to be successful through role plays, group facilitated discussion and interactive lectures. Examples of what will be covered include: gathering contact information, approaching co-workers, building an organizing committee and understanding your rights as a worker participating in workplace organizing.
OT 101 is a great space to learn new skills and practice those you already have! Breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages will be provided. Child care may be available too; just let us know in advance if this is required.
The first session, Organiser Training 101, will take place on February 19th and 20th. Please note that we will also be running Organiser Training 102 for the first time! It will take place the following month on March 19th and 20th and OT 101 *is* a prerequisite. Both sessions will be held on the University of Alberta campus.
