Over 100 union leaders from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, and Nevada attended a four-day training on union skills at the third annual AFT Northwest Leadership Forum, July 11-14, in Vancouver, Washington.  AFT-Oregon and AFT Washington developed the event, along with AFT Local 6732 (OSEA) and Local 5017 (OFNHP), to develop skills for leading and building the union. 

Some of the topics included using new means of communications to keep members informed; working together with community groups on common causes; representing members in worksite and contract issues; using politics to build an economy and an education system that benefits all; and the methods of worksite organizing.
