Talking Union Basics

The Talking Union Basics (TUB) course is a prerequisite to all Advanced programs. Grievance Handling and TUB are prerequisites for the Advanced Stewards Course. Applications must be completed and submitted to your Regional Office by the deadline indicated.

This is the Union's key introductory course. If you have wondered what it means to be a Union member, how the PSAC works, and what happens to your dues dollars, then Talking Union Basics provides answers to these questions.

The course also introduces the collective agreements, your employee rights and your rights as a member of the PSAC. You will learn about the many opportunities to be active in the Union and ways you can make a contribution to building strong locals in the Ontario region. It is recommended that members take this course first, as it provides the basic knowledge you need to get the most from other PSAC courses. The Talking Union Basics (TUB) course is a prerequisite for Local Officers' Training, Grievance Handling, Duty to Accommodate and all Advanced Education Programs. Open to: All members. New members are encouraged to apply.
