Investigatory Meetings: 60 minutes, April 6 or 10, May 11.
Union members have Weingarten Rights when they are being investigated. Union stewards have an important role in these meetings. Gain the skills and confidence to support your coworkers in an investigatory meeting.

How to Sign Up New Members: 60 minutes, April 15.
Learn about and share best practices including how to talk to new employees about the value of joining our union. Plus, with the pandemic and our virtual world, brainstorm ways we can reach new people.

Identifying & Filing/Writing a Grievance: 60 minutes, April 17
A grievance is our union’s legal remedy when management violates our contract. This class will help you know when you should file a grievance and how to do it.

Knowing Your Contract: 60 minutes, April 22.
What’s in your contract? How is it enforced? How do you know if the contract is being violated?

Introduction to Being a Steward: 90 minutes, April 27, July 6.
This class is for anyone who is considering becoming a steward or who wants to know more about their union and their union rights.

 

Documenting & Investigating a Grievance: 60 minutes, May 1.
The steward needs to be able to sort through the evidence to determine if a grievance does, or does not, exist. Interviewing people and finding supporting documents are a key part of making that determination.

Presenting the Grievance: 60 minutes, May 15, June 10.
Once our grievance is written, we want to bring our best points forward plus anticipate management's arguments in order to resolve the grievance at the lowest possible level.

Disciplinary Grievances: 60 minutes, May 20, June 15.
Determining if a coworker's discipline is valid is an important part of a steward's job. We will look at the criteria used to support grievances for unjust discipline.

Answering the Tough Questions: 60 minutes, June 5.
It's hard to have all the answers when asked questions about our union. We'll consider the most frequently asked questions when we talk to our coworkers about our union.

Weeknight classes start at 6:30 p.m. Weekend classes at 10:00 a.m.
