Education provides the foundation for becoming an effective and informed Union member.  

In order to help members grow in their understanding of the Union and the issues it faces, courses have been developed by both the Public Service Alliance of Canada, and the Union of Northern Workers.
Members are encouraged to review these courses and contact the Education Service Officer at UNW headquarters to explore possible options for taking Union courses.
