Integrating Equity, Addressing Barriers: Innovative Learning Practices by Unions (2009)

Second Edition, Updated and Expanded

This is a revised version of a document of the same name published in 2007 which is available at: http://library.copian.ca/item/6446.

The authors have collected brief accounts or sketches of a variety of innovative educational programs initiated by unions across Canada. Each account includes information about the program’s methodology and curriculum; where the program is conducted; whether it is scheduled during work time or during workers’ own time; and why the union began the program.

The sketches are grouped by type of program: literacy, high school; workplace programs; apprenticeship, pre-apprenticeship, work skills training; labour education; integrated initiatives that link two or more of these program areas.

The authors note that the report focuses in particular on programs that address systemic barriers to learning, including age, race, literacy, language, geography and disability.
