The Labour School is primarily organized by the NAPE Education Committee with the ultimate goal being to provide NAPE activists with the tools they need to effectively represent their fellow brothers and sisters in their workplace.

Applications are open to all members in good standing and selection is made on a province-wide basis with consideration being given to equal regional and gender representation.

2018 Labour School 

FROM: NAPE Education Committee

RE: NAPE LABOUR SCHOOL – October 10 – 14, 2018

NAPE will be holding a Labour School on October 10 – 14, 2018 (Wednesday to Sunday) inclusive, at the Terra Nova Resort and Golf Community, Port Blandford.

Selection will be made on a Province-wide basis with consideration being given to equal regional and gender representation. Please complete the application below, and forward to NAPE by fax at (709)-754-0726, mail at P.O. Box 8100, St. John’s, NL, A1B 3M9, or email at by September 10, 2018. The Education Committee will make selection no later than September 15, 2018. The Committee will be compiling a wait list, therefore, if you apply and cannot attend, it is important that you inform us immediately since the Committee will be “backfilling” from the wait list.

Transportation for the School may be provided by charter bus, depending on the number of requests.   Mileage will be paid if you choose to use your own transportation. Please indicate on the registration form whether or not transportation is required.

Registration will be on Wednesday, October 10th, from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. in the main lobby of the Resort. Please make every attempt to register as early as possible in order to accommodate the evening meal and classroom orientation being held that same evening.

Accommodations will be provided to all students (double occupancy). If you require a single room you must pay half the cost and let us know as soon as possible as rooms are at a premium. Accommodations cannot be changed upon arrival at the facility. Should a student choose to arrange other accommodations, the amount payable under the Union’s policy is $25.00 per night plus $10.00 incidental expense. These amounts will not apply to area residents. A stipend of $100.00 for out-of-pocket expenses will be awarded to each activist.

You are expected to arrange your own time off; however, where required, your Union will assist you with any support letter your Employer may request, e.g. date and time of school, proof of attendance, etc.

The following courses (descriptions attached) are being tentatively scheduled for the 2018 Weeklong School and will be offered, depending on the choices of the applicants.

  1. Facing Management Effectively
  2. Mental Health in the Workplace
  3. Collective Bargaining
  4. Parliamentary Procedure and Public Speaking

Successful applicants will be notified immediately following the selection date.

Yours in Unionism,

Wayde Thompson
