Online course for young workers and activists – Apply by February 4
Once again this year, CMG is offering young workers in our union a chance to participate in a free online six-week program specifically designed for workers under 30 and offered by the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC). Young CMG members who took the course last year found the course useful and inspiring.
The course helps younger workers develop skills in leading, building and organizing as well as a better understanding of activism.
The program runs in the evenings each Tuesday and Wednesday from February 24 to April 15, 2015.
Limited space is available for participation in this course, interested candidates should email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to apply.
The deadline is February 4, 2015.
