2021 Steelworkers Vote Courses – More Dates Added

Campaign Schools – More Dates Added – Online and In-person

Your chance to learn more and get involved!

The USW is adding more dates in September and October for our virtual campaign schools in preparation for the next federal election. We’re also hoping to offer in-person sessions in District 3.

These schools are great opportunities to learn about politics, build a network of engaged Steelworkers and volunteer for the NDP.

Elections matter and Steelworker involvement can make a difference.

If you’ve attended a Steelworkers Vote course before – apply to attend Steelworkers Vote at the Campaigner level.

Online course hours are 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Pacific / 11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Eastern plus volunteer hours expected after class each day.

Be ready to work! While virtual, these are intense schools running over three days including volunteer hours each evening of the course.

Local unions will be reimbursed for participant lost time by the USW International Office.**

Don’t delay. Apply today. NextGENers and first-time participants particularly welcome.

“Being a part of Steelworkers Vote has helped me gain knowledge and experience to be a part of exciting campaigns in future elections. I will carry the information and connections made during the course with me for many years. Thank you, Steelworkers for putting on such an amazing class.”
