On Saturday, June 22, 2013, Local 992 shop stewards attended a day-long training session in Hagerstown, Md., designed to provide new and veteran stewards with critical information and specialized skills to help them represent their coworkers more effectively.

Stewards received intensive training on their roles and responsibilities in the workplace, education regarding their legal rights as union representatives, procedural information on grievance handling and arbitration, their legal obligations under the Duty of Fair Representation, and valuable guidance about discrimination and harassment in the workplace.

In addition, stewards received valuable instruction about other relevant federal laws and statutes important in their understanding of their role, and the rights of their members.

"Education is power," said Secretary-Treasurer Tom Krause at the beginning of the morning session. "What you do every day - the role you play in the day-to-day struggle with employers - is critically important for your members."

At the conclusion of the seminar, attendees were presented with completion certificates from Tom Krause and Local President Bob Fahenstock.

Additional photos are available in the photo gallery.
