The Education Committee is small in numbers however, large in ideas. Our main focus since being created in February 2002 is to provide a way to educate our members on union issues that they find useful. So far we organized a 3 day educational for all our stewards, unit chairpersons and Executive Board members in the Spring. We combined this with the new unit training offered by the National. Recently we adopted the Education Policy that is produced by the National, set up dates for future one day weekend schools based on the topics the members have indicated to be useful. We also have developed policies and procedures for members to apply for education and Paid Education Leave Programs. Our chairperson is Kari Jefford and she can be reached through the Local office.
