Expression of Interest Form Due: Labour Community Advocate Training

The Labour Community Advocate Training is sponsored through the partnership between the Saskatoon United Way and Area and the Labour movement.

It is a 9 week course starting Wednesday January 30, 2013 and is offered in Saskatoon.

This course is designed to provide activists with information about community resources and services in order for members to provide appropriate referrals to workers facing workplace, personal or family issues.

SEIU-West will sponsor the enrolment fee for four (4) delegates to attend.

However, members must attend on their own time as no lost wages or honouraria will be provided

If you are interested in this training opportunity, please fill out the SEIU-West Expression of Interest Form as well as the Labour Community Advocate Training Registration Form and send both completed forms by January 14, 2013 to the attention of:

Judy Denniss
Chair, SEIU-West Education Committee
