This work family curriculum provides union instructors, facilitators and discussion leaders with ideas on how to:
* Educate union members and leaders on work family issues;
* Advance these issues on the job; and,
* Advocate for work family issues in the workplace, on the legislative front and in the community
The 3½ hour curriculum contains short modules that can be incorporated into existing union trainings or used in its entirety to train bargaining committees, stewards or rank and file members.
Making it Work Better is designed as a step-by-step guide and contains everything needed including group exercises, a power point presentation, background material and handouts. It can be customized by industry, union, size of the group or leadership level of the participants.
