Dear local leader,
Do you have a new leadership team that has a vision for your local and community? Are your members frustrated that contractual gains are not keeping up with inflation? Is your local getting ready for contentious negotiations? Do you want to tackle new issues like social justice or poverty in your community?
If any of these apply, then the Local Action Project might be right for your local!
The NYSUT Local Action Project (LAP) is an outreach and training program for local unions that teaches proven strategies to increase member participation, build community support and help locals get results in contracts, budget votes and other grassroots issues.
Next year’s LAP will be held July 17–21, 2023, at the Gideon Putnam Hotel in Saratoga Springs, New York.
Interested locals can learn more and submit applications at Application.LocalActionProject.org. The application deadline is Jan. 31, 2023. You should also reach out to your Labor Relations Specialist for more information.
Through the Local Action Project you and your local can:
Thank you, and please reach out with any questions.
