Core training LCAT

Date: March 07, 2015 09:00 AM

Contact: Jamie Clark, jamie.clark@edmn.org, 507-288-5409

Location: Austin Holiday Inn
1701 Fourth St. N.W., Austin

Description: The LCAT program helps locals with internal organizing and community engagement campaigns. The goal is to build positive, sustainable relationships among educators and those who live and work in their communities. Locals do this by creating teams that include local leadership, negotiators, members of settlement committees, and those with an interest in organizing in their schools and communities. Training sessions are offered to give teachers and ESPs foundational skills to help their local union build power and reach their goals.

Participating local teams should consist of one member of the bargaining team, one member of the local’s leadership group and two additional members who will become part of the local’s Contract Action Team. The complete 10-hour training can be done on a Friday night and Saturday.

The maximum number of participating local teams is six.
