2024 District 6 education course calendar

Steelworkers help members gain skills, confidence and a sense of belonging. We train members in health and safety, collective bargaining, workers’ compensation, leadership and other skills members need to protect their rights.

Please review the calendar regularly as course information and scheduling will be updated when new information becomes available.

If you are interested in participating in a course, please speak with your union steward or local union officer. You will need your local union’s approval in order to register and attend a course.

To register for courses, please contact the USW area office offering the course or contact the District 6 Education Co-ordinator, Amanda Zakhour, at azakhour@usw.ca for more information.
