Organize a Workshop

The Joint Learning Program (JLP) invites Union members of the Core Public Administration and their counterpart managers in eligible departments and agencies to take advantage of the opportunity to offer JLP workshops in their work environment. Since 2002, the JLP has been engaging Union members and their supervisors and managers in dialogue-based learning events that contribute to healthier federal government workplaces and improved labour-management relations. The workshops address topics that are important to both the Union and the Employer, and they encourage participants to develop a shared understanding of both the union’s and the employer’s roles and responsibilities in areas such as the elimination of harassment and discrimination, understanding collective agreements, mental health in the workplace, duty to accommodate and working through labour-management consultation committees to promote effective collaboration between the parties.
