Steward Conference: Life After Janus

Life after Janus!

On June 2, OCSEA leaders will gather at the annual Steward Conference to discuss how we’ll build the union after the Janus Supreme Court decision. The conference theme, Life After Janus, will help lead conference goers to discuss and learn about how the union moves forward after a potentially bad decision in June. How will our union lives be affected? What will our workplace look like? What will the role of the steward be? These and other questions will be explored.

This year's theme is Life After Janus.

Please Note: If you would like a release from work, you must register for the conference on or before May 18”. 
The release will only be for Saturday, June 2 the day of the event.
