Every year, CMG’s parent union, CWA Canada, budgets money for education and mobilization so that union members can be provided with opportunities to expand their knowledge and skills, or to become more involved in the union.
This year, due to COVID-19, Locals such as CMG have not been able to provide in-person education, training or events.
To remedy this, the budget will be used to provide 50 members with up to $500 each to spend on an education or training course (university, community college, online, or the like).
Since only 50 grants are available, they will be approved on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline has been extended, and all requests must now be submitted by May 31, 2021.
