You must select only one course.  We reserve the right to assign you to a course other than the one you selected. You will be asked to select your course indicating an order of preference.

Block 1: Advanced Grievance Handling (2 days) and Consultation (1 day)  

Block 2: How to Communicate and Speak Up in a Union (3 days)

Participants are expected to arrive between 10 AM and 12 PM on Wednesday February 5. A meal will be served on site between 12 PM and 1 PM and training will begin at 1 PM. Travel expenses will be reimbursed according to PIPSC Policy on Financial Support for Member Participation (before, PIPSC Travel Policy).

Members attending will be entitled to accommodations the night before the meeting if they cannot arrive at the meeting location on time without leaving home before 7 am. If this applies, please request the night of February 4 on your registration form in the Special Requirements section.

Training will finish around noon on Saturday (depending on the course). In accordance with PIPSC Travel policies, if you are unable to arrive home before 8 PM, please request the night of February 8 on your registration form, Special Requirements section.

In addition, if you believe it unsafe for you to arrive home as per these policies, you may be entitled to accommodations for Saturday evening. Please contact Anne Renaud to request a special authorization.

These provisions apply whether members are travelling to the training venue by car or by plane. They also imply that they are travelling by the most direct route without stopping for a meal.

Since we cannot accept more than 20 participants in each block, enrolment will be limited to 40 stewards for this project. Should we receive more enrolment requests than the number of seats available, a Selection Committee will be formed to select the participants based on various criteria.

You will be reimbursed for your Wednesday, Thursday and Friday salary, except in the case of stewards living within a short distance of the training location who will not be able to claim reimbursement for all of Wednesday.  Your travel expenses will also be reimbursed according to the Institute’s Travel Policy. All meals are included in the package, except for the Tuesday and Saturday evenings (when necessary). Included suppers from Wednesday to Friday have yet to be determined. You will eventually be able to claim these meals as per the Travel Policy. We will make all reservations at Hôtel Pur for you. Should you need to make special arrangements (car rental, stay-over, etc.), please contact Anne Renaud at the Montreal Regional Office at: arenaud@pipsc.ca

  • Documents: The documents will be provided to you on site. However, please bring your collective agreement.
