Family Education Program

Duration: 
8 Days

Since 1960, Unifor has offered a Family Education Program for members and their families.  If selected by the local/national union to attend, the member agrees to give up his/her vacation time and the national union covers costs for meals and accommodations, and where required, air travel.

Adults, both members and their spouse/partner, combine learning and recreational activities and come away from the program with a better understanding of how to integrate trade unionism and social activism in the life of the family and community. 

Preteens participate in recreational programs run by full-trained childcare workers and counselors.

Teenagers participate in a specially-designed program which recognizes their unique interests but also incorporates the issues of social unionism into their curriculum. 

Every Unifor members, and all immediate family members, including dependent children up to and including 18 years of age, are eligible to attend the Family Education Program.

For more information about applying to attend this Family Education Program, contact your Local Union Executive or Education Committee.
