Leadership Skills Series: Supervising Union Employees

November 18 — 19, 2020
Northwest Public Power Association
9817 NE 54th St, Ste 200
Vancouver, WA 98662 

Who Should Attend:

Operations directors, managers, line superintendents, labor relations professionals, and human resource managers who supervise union employees and deal with stewards and officers of the union. This is an optional course in the Leadership Skill Series Certificate Program.

Course Overview:

The MARC Union-Labor Relations program increases the skills and confidence of front line supervisors to serve as management's front-line representatives in dealing with employees, stewards, and officers of the union. Additionally, top-level managers are trained to delegate and support front-line supervisors. The MARC program provides a well-organized format to produce uniform interpretation of the contract, rules, and policies, which reduces inconsistencies in dealing with employees. It also ensures that union procedures with proper documentation are consistently followed in handling grievances, providing job performance counseling, administering disciplinary action, and making job promotion decisions. This two-day course provides supervisors and managers with a set of tools that develops fair and consistent treatment of all employees.

Note: Please plan to leave this course with a binder of course material that measures approximately 12"x12" and 3"thick.
