Turtle Island Training

The Aboriginal Committee together with the Education department are pleased to be offering a new course for SEIU-West Members.

We will be accepting 30 participants to attend this two day Turtle Island training opportunity.

This course is designed for non-Aboriginal workers who want to learn more about Aboriginal Issues and who want to work in solidarity with their First Nations and Metis brothers and sisters. Issues to be discussed include history, spirituality, creating a representative workforce and opening the union to aboriginal activists.

This course will provide a comfortable and supportive environment in which to explore your attitudes, ideas and questions.

Both non-Aboriginal and Aboriginal workers are welcome to enroll in this class and is available to any member, steward, union leader or activist in your unit. Please share this information widely with your membership as we want to fill our class!
