Attend the Prairie School for Union Women!

The Saskatchewan Fed­er­a­tion of Labour (SFL) is host­ing their annu­al Prairie School for Union Women from June 13 – 16, 2022.

This labour edu­ca­tion school is about build­ing sol­i­dar­i­ty and knowl­edge. It teach­es skills union mem­bers need to defend their rights and help cre­ate a bet­ter world of work.

For 2022, URFA has fund­ing to send two women mem­bers to a vir­tu­al course. This year’s vir­tu­al course offer­ings are: Build­ing Inclu­sive Locals That Pri­or­i­tize Human Rights, Wom­en’s Health & Safe­ty in the Work­place, and A Jour­ney to Empow­er Women.


The dead­line to indi­cate your inter­est has been extend­ed to noon on Mon­day, May 22022.

If you are inter­est­ed in attend­ing, please email urfa@​uregina.​ca and pro­vide your name, a brief sum­ma­ry as to why you would like to attend the school, and which course you would like to attend.

If there are more than two mem­bers inter­est­ed in attend­ing, the URFA Exec­u­tive Com­mit­tee will be respon­si­ble for deter­min­ing the attendee. 

Mem­bers may also attend the vir­tu­al or in-per­­son cours­es at this school at their own cost.
