The Research & Education Department offers comprehensive training to APWU activists on a wide array of topics, dedicated to providing union officers and stewards with the skills they need to enforce the Collective Bargaining Agreement, motivate union members, and keep members informed about important issues and activities.
On April 6, the Research & Education Department will provide Arbitration Advocacy training to APWU arbitration advocates. These classes, which focus on the final step of the grievance-arbitration process, provide an in-depth look at case preparation. (Warning: These classes are not for the faint-hearted!)
