NFT Build Rep Workshop
At the BR workshop held on Saturday, November 20th, our building reps discussed stronger communities and learned tips on how to advocate for themselves! They role played different scenarios that dealt with recruitment, learned to handle in house grievances, and gained an understanding of how to interpret the MOU.
They are building power and strengthening our communities. NFT Building Reps are motivated to get back into their schools to organize and increase member to member contact.
Building Reps are such a vital part to being an effective union!
Thank you again to everyone who attended this informative workshop.
