Education for our members is of great importance as it is through education that our members learn the fundamentals of their leadership roles and are given the tools to represent our members at their workplace.  Mine Mill Local 598/Unifor holds a variety of courses at the Union Office, as does the Education Facility in Port Elgin. Education encourages union engagement, mobilizes members to take action and ultimately strengthens locals. Some courses that are available include Grievance Handling, Preparing for Bargaining, Steward Training, Health & Safety, Workers’ Compensation, and Labour Law, just to name a few.

The focus of the Mine Mill Local 598/Unifor Education Committee is to rejuvenate the membership by creatively engaging with the members as well as encourage them to participate in union initiatives, activism and leadership roles.
