Many shop stewards become skilled advocates in winning the union’s case at arbitration and other third party hearings. This course will assist you to better prepare and present cases by learning some basic legal protocols, techniques and procedures. The curriculum covers pre-hearing matters, opening statements, direct and cross examination, making objections, and closing arguments.
