Here’s what attendees have had to say about past trainings:

“The training is highly informative and stimulates thinking about a variety of topics.”


“The information is helpful when we are dealing with issues in our local unions. It’s also great to meet people from other areas and locals.”


“It’s important to know our rights and what we can do in different situations and in negotiations.”


“I believe it’s important for all members to get as informed as possible about every aspect of a union. The training also makes for a better, more informed employee.”


“I think learning more about what our union does and how it works can only improve the view of and standing in the union of ANY MEMBER!”
