Union Training

In-person trainings are back at the William W. Winpisinger Center (W3) in Maryland this year! We have two Forest Service Council led trainings, Basic Steward and Intermediate Steward, and two sessions of Federal Employee Program classes put on by IAM.

Spaces are limited for each class due to the Covid-19 space restrictions, so if you are interested please pay attention to registration deadlines.

Transportation to and from W3 is booked by travel agents contracted by IAM/W3. If you do sign up, the information provided (i.e. name) will be used when purchasing plane tickets and needs to match your State ID or Passport.

Stewards Training Phoenix, Arizona: December 12-16, 2022

NFFE Forest Service Council, in partnership with NFFE National, scheduled an additional Union Stewardship Training to supplement our 2022 training agenda. This training will be held at the Stand Up Live in downtown Phoenix, Arizona from December 12-16, 2022.

The training is open to thirty (30) trainees. As this training session is intended to be an overview and introduction to the skills needed to be an effective union steward in our Council, we encourage you to send attendees who may have not been to a NFFE or IAM-sponsored training in the past and are in the most need of stewardship training.

Locals will be responsible for covering the cost to attend training, NFFE and the FSC will help offset the cost by suppling Breakfast and lunch during training days. If assistance is needed, please contact your CVP.
