Leadership II is designed to build the work done in Leadership I towards making participants aware of the skills and duties necessary to be an effective member and leader in the Local Lodge. The program is the second of three successive programs designed for Local Lodge leadership. Participants expand their knowledge of trade unionism and the IAM through the following topic areas:
- Collective Bargaining
- Issues & Lobbying
- Advanced Steward Training
- Labor History
Each class is limited to sixty participants. Participants are selected by Local Lodges in accordance with IAM policies. Each District Lodge Directing Business Representative/General Chairperson may assign up to six participants to leadership classes, including Leadership II, per year.
Leadership II is also offered in Spanish and French.
