Please note that Patrice Hall has decided to end her appointment as union steward for personal reasons. I respect her wishes and thank her for giving it a try.
This also means that I need more members to serve as chapter representatives. The duties are delineated in the CBA, and I am happy to honestly answer your questions so you can make an informed decision.
NTEU offers a National Training Conference every year, and our chapter pays for our representatives to travel and attend it using part of the union dues members pay every pay period through payroll deduction. This training teaches you about the duty of fair representation and the parties’ duty to bargain in good faith, among other topics.
Our chapter also offers training sessions taught by our NTEU field representative, counseling and on-the-job training from our more experienced representatives, and biweekly meetings where we exchange what we have done and learned.
If you are a member interested in joining, please let me know. If you are not a member, I can help you with that, too!
