Description:

One of the indicators of a strong local is a diverse team of knowledgeable, well-trained elected and appointed leaders. That includes Member Rights Advocates, who deal directly with members to address their concerns, resolve their problems and enforce our contracts.

The MRA III session is five hours and provides in-depth training on grievance processing, representing members in disciplinary meetings and issue organizing.

Participants must complete MRA parts I and II before enrolling in part III. MRA III uses participants’ knowledge and skills from Parts I and II, and focuses deeply on three topics: organizing, representing a member in a disciplinary meeting and grievance processing.

This five-hour session explores the fundamentals of advocacy, valuing member concerns and managing conflict. The Advocacy Model is introduced.
