Orientation and Training


For new union members:

Our member orientation materials, along with the union history and the governance materials, are intended to tell new union members what they need to know to become informed and fully enfranchised members of the union.

For union delegates:

Our delegate (steward) training materials are designed to assist delegates in recognizing and performing their functions, from greeting new members and dealing with intra-shop disputes to effectively handling grievances.

For unit chairs:

These materials are intended for the use of other unit chairs on matters such as how to go about filing an Unfair Labor Practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board or the necessary bureaucratic steps to opening contract bargaining and preserving your right to strike.

For lobbying:

Both the new and the experienced member-lobbyist may find this checklist of basic tips for member lobbyists helpful.
