Seminar – HOW TO RUN A LOCAL POLICE UNION
Sandulli Grace P.C., in cooperation with the Massachusetts Coalition of Police, AFL-CIO, will present an educational seminar, HOW TO RUN A LOCAL POLICE UNION (WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW COULD HURT) on Monday, April 2, 2007, at the Doubletree Hotel, Westborough.
This is the fifth year we have conducted a seminar for Massachusetts police officers. Subjects covered have included the Fair Labor Standards Act, creative strategies for bargaining, the grievance and arbitration process, and police disciplinary issues. From the feedback we received and the growing attendance, these programs conveyed a breadth of useful information.
This year we will present an overview of what is needed to successfully run a local police union.
Prepare for successful contract negotiations
Handle union funds and raise additional funds within the law
Respond when an officer requests Union support for a grievance
Create a Local Union Constitution and conduct a union meeting
Deal with a difficult employer
Represent members in trouble
Deal with potential criminal charges against your members
PLUS, update on new, proposed latest health insurance legislation!!
From the nuts and bolts (constitutions and bylaws), to the essential (handling dues money, representing members in trouble, preparing for contract bargaining), we will give you the tools you need to best represent your members. Whether you are a new or experienced union leader, or a member someday aspiring to union office, you will find this seminar useful and challenging.
The nine experienced union labor attorneys at Sandulli Grace, with over 200 years of cumulative experience, preeminent police defense Attorney Thomas Drechsler, along with several experts in selected topics, will instruct and answer your questions. We hope to see you and other officers from your local there.
Your $35 registration fee includes the seminar, continental breakfast, coffee break, lunch and a post seminar reception.
