The Joint Learning Program

The Joint Learning Program’s (JLP) mandate is to improve workplace relationships and to deepen understanding of the roles and responsibilities of the union and the employer.

The JLP fulfills this mandate by offering learning activities to public-service employees with a participant-led, experiential approach.  Two volunteer facilitators – one representing the union and one the employer – co-facilitate the learning activity. Using this approach, the JLP offers a unique opportunity for unionized public service employees and their managers in the core public administration to build healthy, safe, fair, diverse and inclusive workplaces.
