Social Media Training a must for unions?
MANILA, Philippines — 59 participants or 98 percent of the total union members completed the Social Media Training organized and conducted by CASURECO-2 Union of Supervisory Employees or CAUSE.
Joan Sabanal, CAUSE President, and keynote speaker of the training told CPM that the union while honing the skills of the members and developing organizational strength, should also take a role and responsibility to the community and to the nation as a whole.
She confides that the recently concluded training is their own way of cascading the knowledge and skills they have gained to their own members after attending the seminar on Social Media sponsored by the Labor Education and Research Network (LEARN) and People’s Media Advocacy Asia (PMAA) last April in Metro Manila.
She adds, she is fortunate to be among the participants in the said seminar as she understood how social media can be a powerful tool to inform, educate and engage the members to union matters and national issues.
Sabanal believes re-echoing what she learned could provide a new avenue for their union members and energize their commitment to be more proactive in all the programs of the union in the future.
Among the topics discussed in the training are the following; The dominance of Facebook, Twitter, Meme, Basic Photography and how to be a responsible social media users.
The social media training was held in Naga Pilgrims Hotel, Magsaysay Avenue, Naga City last May 13, 2017. CPM
