The Next Generation Training Course is a four (4)-day course targeted at helping young & new union members enhance their knowledge of the union, including how the union works, and promote the development of leadership skills. This Course is an intensive educational experience which encompasses topics of learning your rights, community service, mentoring, the union structure, where you can be involved, and organizing, as well as identifying challenges and obstacles we all face. The course will include a tour of the USW headquarters in Pittsburgh as well as having presentations from guest speakers.

This educational opportunity is coordinated by District 1 Next Gen Coordinator Tiffany McKee. Should you have any questions regarding the course, please contact Tiffany at tiffanymckee47@yahoo.com, 614-888-6052 (office) or 419-234-5896 (cell).
