2020 Manitoba Winter School, February 20 -23, 2020

Union education means union power!
The power to defend out rights as workers, to protect the services we provide, and to build caring communities.

This year’s CUPE Winter School covers a range of topics that will make our union stronger by equipping CUPE activists with new skills through course materials, and sharing with each other.
