Are you ready to gain a real voice on the job?
Join us at our first-ever Virtual Summer Leadership Conference to learn how you can lay the groundwork to win collective bargaining rights at the local level in 2021!
During the General Assembly session, VEA helped overturn a decades-long ban on public sector collective bargaining. Thanks to VEA, local Unions will have the right to be recognized for bargaining beginning in 2021.
But before you bargain a new contract, you will have to organize, build coalitions, grow Union membership, and much more. At the Virtual Summer Leadership Conference we’ll equip you with the skills to win representation and have a real voice.
The conference runs from July 13-16 and registration is open now. Sessions are spread across the five days, usually with virtual presentations in the mornings followed by virtual Q&A or “labs” in the afternoons.
Among the topics:
This comprehensive online training is open to anyone interested in stepping up as a leader in the VEA or their local Union. And it’s FREE! All you’ll need, once you’ve registered, is reliable internet access and a device with a webcam and microphone.
Sign up today—you don’t want to let this opportunity slip by!
