CFT provides training opportunities for local unions

Strategic planning for local unions

The CFT Training Department provides local unions with meeting planning and facilitation support for executive board retreats and strategic planning sessions. In these meetings, local leadership teams focus on the strategies and best practices that will enable your organization to successfully meet the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. Teams discuss concrete goals and make plans to put ideas into action.


Training for union stewards and site representatives

Achieving good resolutions
to on-the-job issues is an important way that the union brings fairness and the voice of educators to the workplace. In this introductory course for union stewards and site representations we discuss strategies, best practices and skills to address on-the-job issues so that our classrooms, campuses, school buses, offices, and school grounds are better places for our members to work and our students to learn. We look at a variety of tools including basic grievance handling, organizing and member outreach.


Customized local union training

The CFT Training Department is also available to assess your local union’s training needs and work with your local leadership to create a customized training and leadership development plan.
