The 44th United Association for Labor Education (UALE) Northeast Summer School for Women in Unions and Worker Organizations saw its largest class yet, with 166 women attending from the labor movement. A total of fifteen women from the IBEW’s 3rd District, including eight sisters from Local #3, participated in five days of leadership development hosted by the CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies and Hofstra University from July 27th-31st.
Attendees had some great workshops to choose from, such as grievance handling, internal organizing, how to start your own podcast, public speaking, and how to successfully navigate non-traditional work, just to name a few.
“Summer School was a lasting experience that will forever stay in my mind and my heart,” sister Diana Cabrera said. “I am grateful to my union Local #3 IBEW for the amazing opportunity to participate.”
