    resources which includes a revised handbook and accessible entertaining and educational web videos We want to make sure every member knows the basics about the union how and why it does what it does how to access services and how to participate We ve created three web videos that we hope will be watched and shared with new members and members who may not know much about COPE 378 The videos are all available on the COPE 378 YouTube page and the Member Services page of the COPE 378 website The first video is called New Guy Meets Union and goes over a fictional new member s first day learning about the services the union provides how to contact the union the role of the Job Steward and where to find more information This irreverent video takes stylistic cues from a very popular workplace sitcom and is aimed at playing with some of the preconceptions and misconceptions some people have about the labour movement and unions In the second video Members Powering the Union we interview current and former COPE 378 stewards and show members working at a variety of locations Thanks to everyone who made themselves available for filming on this marathon day in which we visited several COPE 378 worksites The video talks about the history and current role of COPE 378 as well as why unions matter to workers The third and final video returns us to the new guy learning about How Your Union Works The video uses fun and quirky illustrations to clarify and make engaging what can be a complicated structure to explain These videos were rolled out at the COPE 378 Convention in November and we will be updating the handbook further to reflect the great suggestions we got from delegates We hope
