141 Report: Union Educators Adapt to Virtual Formats to Support Members
District 141 Communications Representative Dave Lehive recently sat in a class with District 141 Educator Kim Krasani, to see how the Education Department continues their work during the pandemic using virtual tools.
A 20-year veteran at United Airlines and an active member of Local 1776 in Philadelphia, Kim talks about her background and shares her experience leading union classes via Zoom. Dave also interviews a class participant, Jordan Kausin, a newly appointed Shop Steward from Monterey, California. Jordan speaks about why he volunteered to represent his coworkers during these challenging times.
Kim credits the quick actions of Mac McGovern, District 141 Education Director, who recognized early on that travel restrictions during the pandemic created a need for new ways to reach members and continue the department’s mission. With the full support of District PDGC Mike Klemm, and his assistant Ann Clifford, who makes sure participants receive all supporting materials for classes on time, District 141 Educators continue to provide the resources needed to represent members effectively.
For more information about virtual training classes or to sign up, contact your local lodge leadership or District 141 AGC, who will coordinate with Director Mac McGovern and District 141 educators to best serve your needs.
