Overview of our program

Our Education Program is based on modern adult education techniques: workshops, role play, case studies, discussion periods, interactive panels, group projects, audio-visual aids, etc. Using these techniques, participants share their experiences, resolve problems and develop strategies for the future.

The Alliance Facilitators’ Network (AFN) is also a vital part of our Education Program.

Education policy

There’s more to organizing than signing membership cards, holding a vote and applying for certification. As a first step, workers choose their union, but the end game is to become an active union member. Through a process of membership development and empowerment, a dynamic, united and democratic union can take root and grow strong. This process is more commonly known as union education.
