District 11 Collective Bargaining Conference


In order to improve the collective bargaining efforts of our union, a Collective Bargaining Conference will be held April 23-26, 2023 at the Doubletree Bloomington-Minneapolis South in Bloomington, Minnesota. 

This conference is for all local unions whose contracts expire between May 1, 2023 and April 30, 2024. It will be the responsibility of each local to decide how many delegates to send, but I would strongly encourage, at a minimum, the President or Unit President of each affected contract to participate. 

The training will include a mock bargaining session and debrief.

There will be a registration fee of $125 for each participant which includes the cost of all training materials and lunch on Monday and Tuesday.

All other costs such as lost time, hotel and travel expenses will be the responsibility of the local union.

Please complete the registration form and return it along with a check for the registration fee to the District office in Minneapolis no later than March 31, 2023.
