CLC Winter School 2024
October 17, 2023
To: All MoveUP Job Stewards, Executive Councillors and Executive Board Members
MoveUP, through the Education Committee, is offering to job stewards, executive councillors, and executive board members, an opportunity to attend the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) Winter School.
The CLC courses commence Week 1, Sunday, January 14, 2024, and continue each week, concluding Week 5 Sunday, February 11, 2024.
If you are selected to attend based on the criteria below, your wages, accommodations and expenses will be paid by MoveUP.
Your MoveUP vice-presidents will be responsible for selecting participants from their units, with selection being based on the following:
– a demonstrated commitment to the labour movement within MoveUP, and/or our affiliates,
– previous MoveUP or CLC labour courses taken,
– how you will use your new knowledge and skills to engage and mobilize members in your workplace,
– volunteer and activism history with MoveUP or the greater labour movement.
As spaces are limited, priority will go to those members who have demonstrated their involvement to not only MoveUP but the movement as a whole. Successful applicants will be required to prepare a short report about the course they attended to their vice-president upon completion.
While we respect the choices of our members, there may be courses that your vice-presidents feel are better suited to the needs of our membership therefore please note that changes may be made to your selections. If you have questions, please contact your vice-president.
Course descriptions for the 2024 Winter School will be available on the CLC website here. The courses listed are subject to change so please ensure you indicate three different course choices and which week you would like to attend on the registration site.
