Contract Administration

The contract lies at the center of day-to-day union practice. The interpretation and enforcement of contract language depends on the union representative. How can union leaders, stewards, and rank and file members ensure that the contract is honored and not circumvented? This course explores issues that union reps experience on an everyday basis. Students will discuss how to resolve problems that are contract-based by effectively utilizing grievance procedures. Additionally, class participants will learn how to creatively harness the energy of union members themselves to build the local union and address problems that might arise in the workplace.
