Alliance Facilitators

Would you like to offer union education in your workplace?  We have a skilled network of members who are AllianceFacilitators (AFs) who would like nothing more than to facilitate short union education modules in your workplaces!   Please contact the Regional Education Officer, Pierre Lebel, if you would like to invite an Alliance Facilitator to facilitate a workplace or Local union activity.

 

The Joint Learning Program (JLP) for members at Treasury Board

The Joint Learning Program (JLP) is a partnership between the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) and the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat. The pilot, which was negotiated in 2001, marked the first time a bargaining agent and the employer agreed through contract negotiations to jointly deliver learning activities to enhance labour-management relations in the public service.

The objectives of the JLP are to improve labour relations and increase the understanding of the roles of the union and management in the workplace. The JLP achieves its objectives by providing workshops in areas of mutual interest for which the employer does not already have a legal obligation to provide training and where both union and management have specific roles and responsibilities. 

Contact the person in charge of the JLP for the National Capital Region to find out how to request a workshop or to become a JLP Facilitator.
