We are very excited to announce that registration for the 2007 Carolina Labor School is now open! Labor School will be held at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington on June 24-29, 2007. Admission to Labor School is open only to members of affiliated local unions and state councils.
A highlight of the school will be instructors from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Center for Labor Education and Research, who provide practical leadership training for your local union officers and shop stewards. Mike Okun and his pals, the Pee Wees, will provide participants with an understanding of the most important and useful aspects of state labor law. We will also have experienced Workers’ Compensation lawyer, Valerie Johnson, to explain its most important components – this year for an extended, double session!
Participants should start getting in shape for our annual Game Day & Picnic, which will be held Wednesday afternoon, June 27th.
Tuition & Fees – students can stay on campus or they may commute to campus everyday; in either case, tuition & fees covers instruction, materials, admission to the Game Day & Picnic, and all meals for on-campus students and lunch daily for commuters.
- On Campus: $365 tuition & fees per student; includes lodging, three meals a day.
- Commuters: $265 tuition & fees per student; breakfast & dinner are not included.
Register Now! – Because of limited meeting space, we put a cap on the number of registrations we accept. Confirmations are made on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please select your students as soon as possible and return the enclosed registration form with payment no later than June 15th.
We will be sending additional information – including directions, campus map, and what-to-bring list – directly to each registered student after the June 15th cutoff date. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact us.
Talk to your local union officers about how you can be part of the premier labor steward education program in the Carolinas, today!
