Union Chapter Resources

AAUP union chapters can draw on the collective bargaining expertise of national staff and leaders as needed. This expertise ranges from providing training on organizing colleagues to helping devise strategies on bargaining first contracts and enforcing contracts after they have been signed. The capstone of the AAUP training programs is the annual Summer Institute, which brings together faculty from chapters and state conferences. Faculty experts, along with national staff, conduct workshops on a variety of topics, including negotiations, leadership training, communications, and legislative affairs.

To supplement this, the national office also provides on-site education and training tailored to local needs, as well as webinars on collective bargaining topics.
