Once again, District 3 will be holding the weeklong Summer School at the Trickle Creek Lodge & Kimberly Alpine Resort on June 5-10, 2016.

I am pleased to announce the following courses will be offered this year:

  • Facing Management
  • Occupational Health and Safety
  • Leadership for Action

For those students new to our school we will be holding an orientation session in the Stemwinder from 3pm – 5pm.   We will also once again be holding “The Amazing USW Race” for those who want to participate, which will begin at 4pm on Sunday, June 5th, followed by a “Welcome” barbeque at 6pm.

Please see the enclosed registration form and course outlines.  One form must be completed for each local union delegate and submitted to the District 3 office, with the registration fee, no later than May 13, 2016.

We look forward to your Local's participation in this year’s school.

In solidarity,
