Course Description:

Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO): Learn what the differences are between representing as an EEO representative and representing someone as a Union representative. The basics of representation will be covered, developing claims, processing claims, and EEO hearing preparation.

Federal Labor Relations Authority: The FLRA is an independent administrative federal agency created by Title VII of the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978. The Statute allows certain non-postal federal employees to organize, to bargain collectively, and to participate through labor organizations of their choice in decisions affecting their working lives. This presentation introduces the union official to the FLRA office, its scope and functions and how to best interact with its staff while representing the client. Presentation will also include writing Unfair Labor Practices, organizing bargaining units, developing basic negotiation skills.

Federal Mediation & Conciliation Services: The Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service is an independent agency whose mission is to preserve and promote labor-management peace and cooperation. The Agency provides mediation and conflict resolution services to industry, government agencies and communities. This presentation will help union officials to understand: The value a mediator adds to the labor and management relationship; how to develop problem-solving techniques and find collaborative approaches to bargaining; and the benefits of mediating grievances.

Information Request: The Federal Service Labor Relations Statute provides for agencies to furnish labor organizations with data/information related to collective bargaining. The law recognizes that constructive labor-management relations are in the public interest and that the process of labor management relations is facilitated when the agency provides unions with information needed for effective negotiations and representation. This presentation will provide union officials with the necessary tools to seek information and handle disputes when management denies the information requested.

Legislative Action/PAC: Learn why this issue is so important to the battle NAGE is able to wage and the influence we maintain on Capitol Hill and D.C. City Council. You will receive information on how to act as your Local’s Legislation Political Action Officer. You will understand how vital each member’s support of PAC is.

Public Employee Relations Board (PERB): The PERB is an independent agency that resolves labor-management disputes involving agencies of the District government and labor organizations representing agency employees. This presentation introduces the union official to the District of Columbia’s PERB office, its scope and functions and how to best interact with its staff while representing the client. Presentation will also include an overview of Unfair Labor Practices, organizing bargaining units within D.C. Government and arbitration reviews.

Basic Representation (Basic Officers’ Training): Congratulations! You’ve been elected as an officer of your local. Now find out what that means and how to execute the duties and responsibilities of your new post, what you can and cannot do and how to manage properly. This class covers the duties, responsibilities and obligations of a union officer/steward representing for NAGE.

Retirement: Are you really prepared for retirement? What will it take to get you there within the time YOU have left? This presentation explains and gives options for more of a worry-free retirement experience.

Weingarten Rights: An employee's right to representation in investigatory or pre-disciplinary meetings was established in a 1975 United States Supreme Court decision, NLRB v. Weingarten, Inc. This presentation will highlight the purpose of these rights based on public sector collective bargaining laws; what situations give rise to Weingarten rights; what constitutes a "reasonable expectation" that discipline may result; and how and when should an employee request representation.
