Some college staff members have decided to step into the role of Association Representative (AR) to assist USofCC members across the campus. ARs are the union’s feet on the street, there to share information and help you.
New ARs are being trained to 1) share USofCC information and news with you, 2) answer questions about our union and our contract with the college, 3) gather your input about union, contract, and workplace matters, and 4) respond to any bargaining unit member who believes he or she might have a grievance under our contract or who requests representation in a disciplinary meeting.
USofCC started training ARs during February. The next training session, titled KNOW YOUR CONTRACT, will be 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., Friday, April 8, on campus. Place to be announced. Individuals interested in becoming Association Representatives are encouraged to attend, along with any member who’d simply like to learn more about union bargaining rights and representation.
To RSVP for the April 8th training, call Ina Lloyd at IEA/NEA at 312-407-0227. Join us to learn more about how to make USofCC the best resource it can be. For more information, see http://www.usofcc.org, call 312-369-3201, or email email@example.com.
