Member Engagement-Member Action

August 25, 2022

The Yukon Federation of Labour (YFL) is organizing this course. It is a 3-day course designed for experienced shop stewards, local union leaders or any committed member who wants to transform how members engage with their union and how their union engages with members. 

This course will train participants on the three-step approach to effective member engagement (Go, Listen, Build) and connect it to a three-step approach for building an active membership (one-on-one communication, taking action on worksite issues, and designing a strategy and plan to win).

This training is particularly helpful for locals with upcoming contract negotiations, a backlog of unresolved grievances, a particularly disengaged membership, or a diverse membership that is not reflected in local leadership.

Each participant will leave the training with a worksite-specific plan for creating an engaged and active membership as well as a series of measurable goals to evaluate outcomes.

Interested YEU members must apply using this form by September 7th. Once your application is approved, the YEU will confirm your registration with the YFL.
