The Labor and Employment Relations Association (LERA) Gateway Chapter will offer a refresher program on collective bargaining, designed for the seasoned advocate as well as for those who are new in the field, on Wednesday, Aug. 1.
The session, called “Jeapordy? A Collective Bargaining Review,” begins at 7:45 a.m. with breakfast and registration, followed by the program, which is from 8:15 to 10:15 a.m. It will be held at the UFCW Local 655 Union Hall, 300 Weidman Road, in Ballwin.
The fun, interactive program will be facilitated by St. Louis Federal Mediation & Conciliation Service Commissioner Myla Hite, who has more than 40 years of experience in the Labor/management arena as a lead negotiator, facilitator, mediator and consultant.
