Union Education Program

The Division of Labor Studies offers an extensive noncredit program, the Union Education Program (UEP). The UEP offers workshops, short courses, and conferences that emphasize the development of union skills. UEP courses, scheduled to suit the needs of local unions and Central Labor Councils, often meet on Saturdays for three to eight consecutive weeks and are held in union halls and on IU campuses. The members of the DLS faculty travel across the state to teach UEP courses.

The DLS offers dozens of UEP courses and can design a course to meet any union's needs. Some of the course offerings include:

  • Arbitration
  • Collective Bargaining
  • Contract Campaigns
  • Family and Medical Leave Act
  • Grievance Handling/Steward Training
  • Indiana Workers' Rights
  • Labor Law
  • Legal Rights of Union Stewards
  • Mobilizing the Membership
  • Occupational Safety and Health
  • Researching a Company/Employer
  • Union Officers' Training
  • Workers' Compensation
The UEP does not have admission requirements, tests, or grades. There is a nominal charge. Courses are tailored to meet the needs of a local or international union, with enrollments then limited to the contracting union. Contact the Division of Labor Studies at the IU campus nearest you to inquire about the UEP. Participants who complete 150 hours in the UEP are awarded a Certificate of Recognition.
