Boilermakers Collective Bargaining Institutes

Each summer, the Department of Education and Training Services sponsors two week-long collective bargaining institutes on the University of Wisconsin (UW) campus. Classes are taught by University of Wisconsin-Madison School for Workers faculty and International staff.

The two institutes offered are Basic and Advanced Collective Bargaining. Subject matter includes introductory courses in collective bargaining, grievance handling, administering the contract, preparing for arbitrations, political action, strategic planning, occupational safety and health issues, and building the union.

Classes are taught on the University of Wisconsin campus in Madison, Wisconsin.

For more information, or to enroll in an institute, contact Teresa Carter in the Boilermakers Department of Education and Training Services.

Upcoming Boilermakers Collective Bargaining Institutes and other educational opportunities from the International and from other sources are listed on the Boilermakers Education & Training Calendar.
