SEIU Local 221 is committed to building our union through the work of our member leaders. Now is the time to build strength in our union. The Leadership Academy is a commitment to trainings, planning, and building community through our union. The Academy’s knowledge will extend beyond the training period and is expected to support and grow your skills as a leader and steward. You will be supported by the Member Leader in Action team, Advocacy Center, as well as your Worksite Organizer to build your skills and make change in your worksite and community. This training program brings together representation and organizing skills in order to give members the most comprehensive leadership development. Each member will have a Purple Power Project they choose to work on to build power in a meaningful way for our union (example: creating a plan to build union membership at your worksite, building a Labor Management Committee, etc.).
Applications (download an application PDF by clicking here) for the training starting on Oct. 21st are due by Oct. 18. Email completed applications to Joanna Stewart firstname.lastname@example.org.
