Please select your students as soon as possible and submit your registration with payment no later than Friday, June 21, 2019 for guaranteed admission and the “Standard” rate.

Instructors from the Labor Education Program at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock will give practical leadership training for your local union officers and shop stewards. Our General Counsel, Mike Okun and his friends Mr. and Ms. Pee Wee, will give participants with an understanding of the most important and useful aspects of state labor law. We will also have an experienced Workers’ Compensation lawyer to explain its most important components.
