Get Notified When Steelworkers Vote Is Offered Again

Following our successful pilot in June of Steelworkers Vote as a three-day online course, the USW will be offering more Steelworkers Vote online campaign training courses later this year in preparation for the next federal election.

Sign up below to be notified when we schedule the next course dates for Steelworkers Vote.

These three-day 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.

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 particularly welcome.

“The Steelworkers Vote school taught me a lot about how the political structure works, also that we as Steelworkers need to support the party that has our interest. It opens your eyes to the political world to get involved in.”

** As this is an online school requiring no travel, no per diem is reimbursed by the International. If the employer doesn’t cover pension/RRSP and benefits during union leave, local unions will be responsible for these costs as these are not reimbursable by the International.

** Local unions will have to cover participant costs related to per diem, pension or RRSP and benefit contributions.
