As the labor movement and the laws that protect workers’ rights are coming under heavy attack it is crucial that our members are active and involved in the local lodges and their communities. Our brothers and sisters must be able to promote and communicate unionism and the current struggles of workers as such the importance of the Train-the-Trainer program at the William W. Winpisinger Center Education and Technology Center is more important now than ever before.
Bilingual Machinists members are the bridge to the non-English speakers within our union and the communities and play a vital role in organizing and promoting our union and the current struggles facing labor. The Spanish Train-the-Trainer is coming up from August 12th to August 17th. Districts and Locals are encouraged to reach out to their Spanish speaking members who would benefit from attending this class that will ensure more effective workplace leaders. Completion of Advanced Leadership is required to attend this class.
The Spanish Leadership classes at W3 provide the tools necessary for grassroots activists to promote and protect the labor movement, these are the next generation of leaders who will go out and educate the Spanish speaking population within our communities.
The enrollment deadline of July 13th is fast approaching. Talk to your membership, lodge leaders, at the local and district and all levels, about the importance of these Spanish classes. Let’s identify participants and encourage them to participate and send these Spanish speaking members to the upcoming Spanish Train-the-Trainer class at the Winpisinger Center.
The remaining Spanish classes for 2018 are as follows:
Aug 12-17 SPANISH TRAIN-THE-TRAINER
