The greatest strength of every union is in its members. This course builds skills in identifying and building power within the rank and file and through all corners of the membership. Participants will practice mapping the workplace to determine areas of support or opposition to the union; learn to identify, recruit, and mentor natural leaders; examine how structures can inhibit or nurture effective member engagement; engage in one-to-one conversations that connect the interests of members to the objectives of the union; and move from shared purpose to collective action. The techniques and practices advance the organizing model to build an engaged and powerful membership and achieve better bargaining outcomes and daily connections.
