Event at a Glance


June 18, 2024, 7:30 pm

This workshop has limited capacity and is for stewards and elected officers who work with stewards - not staff. Please register only if this applies to you.

The workshop will be held on Tuesday, June 18th, and will run from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Eastern (4 to 5:30 p.m. Pacific). This is an online workshop and will be held via Zoom.

Past practice is one of the most powerful arguments in the union toolbox. It is also one of the most misunderstood.

This workshop, led by author and labor educator Robert Schwartz, will explain the five tests of past practice, the three main categories (clarifying, free-standing, and conflicting practices), and the rules applying to each. It will give you a roadmap to use when arguing past practice grievances and preparing labor board charges.

Registrants may consider buying the latest (Fourth) edition of the author's book: How to Win Past Practice Grievances ($13 from Labor Notes).

Registration is $10 - no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
