The 2017 Frontline Skills Development Institute, a three-day learning event, welcomed nearly 200 frontline union leaders.
The theme for this year’s FSDI was Union Leaders Leading Partnership.
Through speakers and workshop facilitators, union members learned to manage projects effectively, execute on work plans, and deliver engaging and succinct presentations to leaders. In addition, there were sessions focusing on workplace safety, total health and supporting and developing unit-based teams.
Each year, we invite Total Health Labor Leads, Workplace Safety leads, special-assignment staff such as union partnership representatives and other front-line union leaders designated by their local unions. The goal? Equip emerging union workers with the leadership and partnering skills that will help in their daily work.
