07/05/2018 - The Research & Education Department sponsor's the APWU’s 16th Educational Conference, a National Convention event that provides union members with a wealth of information to take home to their local and state organizations. Recently, they have added two additional workshops to the 2018 pre-convention training!

1. New APWU SEARCH Interface Training Arbitration Advocates should attend this training. The new webbased database is designed to be used by arbitration advocates to simplify searches for arbitration awards and decisions. The company that maintains APWU SEARCH database has developed this new design to enable the system to function more efficiently. The training will include how the new interface works, how to conduct searches using the multiple-tab feature, and methods to narrow searches.  (10 am-1 pm)

2. “The APWU Health Plan" as an Organizing Tool - Teaches techniques and strategies for signing up non-members utilizing the APWU Health Plan and other benefit programs that are reserved for members. Explores ways to get members, who have quit, to rejoin the union. (10 am-1 pm)

Thirty workshops will be offered on Friday, Aug. 17, 2018, the day prior to the craft meetings, at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Hall B.
