Mid-Hudson Local President Training: Know Your Contract

Mid-Hudson Local President Training: Know Your Contract

As a leader in your union, the issues you will deal with most frequently concern your terms and conditions of employment.  Your members (and sometimes even administrators) will come to you with questions about the contract – often before opening the contract themselves.  Consequently, your familiarity with the contract will help you quickly respond to questions and concerns about the terms and conditions of employment for all your members.
