LUDL Training Information

What is a LUDL?

A LUDL is a Local Union Discussion Leader that is trained, certified and qualified to supplement Educational Staff in the following areas (just to name a few):

  • Arbitration
  • Collective Bargaining Workshop
  • Communications
  • Grievance Handlers’ and Bargaining Representatives’ Workshop
  • High School Labor Studies
  • Labor Programming on Public and Cable TV

Delegates interested in applying for a LUDL position for the region should ask their local union president to write the Regional Director a letter of recommendation. Please include a résumé with this letter. The Director will review all presented materials and will ultimately recommend a delegate (1 delegate is selected from each region per year) to attend an intensive five week Fellowship Program at Black Lake in Onaway, MI. This program will include UAW members from various sections of the country who have also been selected to participate as well. In an educational environment, delegates will be provided with the training and tools needed to become effective local leaders. This is also a wonderful opportunity to discuss and learn more about current concerns to unions, labor history, labor law and other related subject matter.

Please send all LUDL letters of recommendation and résumés to:

Region 4 UAW
900 East Center Street
Ottawa, IL 61350
Attn: Director's Office
