Union Education Program

The Division of Labor Studies offers an extensive noncredit program, the Union Education Program (UEP).

UEP open enrollment courses and conferences are available to workers in communities throughout the state; they are offered in local union halls, on the various campuses of Indiana University, and on the campuses of other educational institutions.

Classes usually meet weekly for 4 to 10 weeks. They are open to participants from both large and small unions, craft and industrial unions, and public- and private-sector unions. Typical topics for these classes are labor law, collective bargaining, steward training, communications, OSHA, and arbitration.

Other programs meet the educational needs of individual unions. Local or international unions may contract with the Division of Labor Studies to conduct these programs. Enrollments are limited to members of the contracting union.

There are no special entrance requirements, tests, or grades. Participants who complete a class or conference are awarded a Certificate of Achievement from the Division of Labor Studies. Upon completion of 150 classroom hours in the UEP, the participant is awarded a Certificate of Recognition. There is a nominal charge for UEP classes and conferences.
