141 Report: District Educators Hold Workshop

Sep 24, 2021

This week, the District 141 Education Department held a two-day workshop at the District Headquarters in Chicago, Illinois. The workshop was hosted by Mac McGovern, the District Director of Education.

District educators help train union stewards and local officers by holding on-site classes at local lodges around the country. The training classes cover a wide range of union topics, including understanding contract language, officer responsibilities, and best practices for union stewards as they participate in employee discipline hearings. The lessons are available to all IAMAW 141 Members, Committee Members, and Local Officers across all airlines represented by the District.

District Educators participating in the workshop updated some elements of the union steward curriculum, adding new lessons and revamping others. “Some of the changes have been made to grievance writing and investigation sheets,” said attendee Chris Lusk. Lusk also explained that Zoom training would be used when needed, but the District Educators are moving forward with more live training. He also advised viewers seeking education classes “to reach out to their AGC’s if the locals need some education classes done.” 

District 141 Educators participating in the workshop included Chris Lusk (UA), Brian Harrison (AA), Deena Pena (UA), Kim Krasani (UA), Alice Potter (AA), Ku’ueli McGuire (HA), and Jeff Carlson. The event was led by District 141 Director of Education, Mac McGovern.
