AFSCME Local 328, your union, wants to help you become a leader. One way we can help is support your attending classes offered by LERC.
The University of Oregon's Labor Education and Research Center provides educational programs to workers and their organizations. They offer affordable high quality courses in basic, intermediate and advanced levels of Union leadership training. These classes are for the working person. You do not need a college degree to attend these classes. Weekend classes are from Friday night through all day Saturday.
In addition to the educational opportunity, you also have the chance to meet members from other unions. LERC also offers the AFL-CIO Summer School at the University of Oregon in August each year.
One way we can help is to pay for your tuition for classes held in the Portland Metro Area and/or the AFL-CIO Summer School. If you are interested please contact the chair of AFSCME Local 328 Training and Education Committee:
