Understanding Local & National Contract Language

Thursdays 6-8pm, April 28, 2022 - June 2, 2022 6-8pm

UM-D Fairlane Center North Building Quad F, 19000 Hubbard Drive, Dearborn, MI, 48126

This course will leave you with an understanding of your local agreement.  It's the local contract supplements that impact our members' daily work lives, overtime, premium pay, incentives, starting times and shifts, job transfers within the unit, and incentive pay, sometimes making a bigger impact than the wage increases in the master agreement. We will also learn to interpret national contracts that cover more members and contain major issues like wages, benefits, healthcare, retirement, health and safety, job security language etc. Participants in this class should bring their local contract and supplement and any regional, national, or international contract books. Course will be taught by veteran instructor Andrea Hunter, President of USW Local 1299.
