Education and Training

The Education and Training Department provides training and educational services to TWU local unions. In coordination with local union officers, the Department designs programs tailored to the needs of our locals. Training includes intensive workshops on grievance handling, arbitrations, and parliamentary procedures. In addition, the Department provides extensive new officer training as well as leadership training for seasoned officers.
We strive to provide training and resources to address all aspects of membership and leadership education, ensuring the best possible representation for TWU members.
