training update

National Business Agent Nick Vafiades has arranged for the following in-person training for our Officers and Stewards

 Registration costs per person will be updated as soon as we know, but they should be somewhere around the  $530 range

Basic Shop Steward College is scheduled for February 27th through to March 3rd  at Camp Huston. This is in-person training that will be done through the NBA Office. The registration form is on the website. The cost is $530 per person. This includes room with linens, towels, and meals.

Basic SSC is designed to familiarize the steward with the Joint Contract Administration Manual, the Grievance –Arbitration process (article 15), the role and rights of the NALC Steward (article 17), the Steward’s right to information (Article 31), assisting carriers with Investigative Interviews, Investigating, Presenting and Adjusting Grievances at the Informal A level. The class also will teach you how to handle resolved grievances and how to make appeals to the Formal A level if not resolved.

Intermediate Shop Steward College (ISSC) is training for Stewards/Grievance Handlers that will process a grievance that is not resolved at the Informal A level and Investigate, Present and Adjust grievance at the Formal A level. If the grievance is not resolved at Formal A, the class will show the Steward how to appeal to Step B.  The dates for 2022 are April 10th – 14th at Camp Huston. The registration form is below.  I suggest that you send an inexperienced, not trained Steward to Basic first. Then send them to ISSC in April.

Discipline Shop Steward College is scheduled for September 18th through the 22nd at Camp Huston. This will be a full college on handling discipline.

Registration Forms and Checks are sent to WSALC Treasurer Holly Curatolo. 

 As of current situation, we are not planning a State Wide Training (SWT) in 2022. My reason for this is to have SWT on the opposite year that we have a National Convention.

 Feel free to contact me with any issues or concerns.

WSALC DOE Bob James
