El esfuerzo de la Unión de Maquinistas para promover y aumentar el liderazgo de nuestros miembros hispanohablantes es el resultado de más de una década de desarrollo por parte del Grupo de Liderazgo en Español .

“Cuando los estudiantes están aquí, tenemos seis instructores de tiempo completo que provienen de diferentes lugares de trabajo”, dijo Edmundo Osorio, Representante de Educación del IAM. “Los alentamos a que alcen sus voces en sus comunidades y consideren los derechos humanos, y hacerlo sin temor a represalias del empleador, porque es importante que se sientan seguros y entiendan su protección bajo las leyes laborales, que conozcan sus derechos y sepan lo que pueden y no pueden hacer”.

A lo largo de 2018, los cursos de español incluirán Liderazgo I, Liderazgo II, Liderazgo avanzado, Negociaciones colectiva, Organización y Entrenar-al-Entrenador. El primer curso, Liderazgo I, tendrá lugar del 11 al 16 de marzo.

“When the students are here we have six full-time instructors that all come from the workplace,” said IAM Education Representative Edmundo Osorio. “We encourage them to raise their voices in their communities and to consider human rights, to do so without fear employer retaliation, because it is important that they feel confident and understand their protection under the labor laws, that they know their rights and know what they can and cannot do.”

Throughout 2018, Spanish courses will include Leadership I, Leadership II, Advanced Leadership, Collective Bargaining, Organizing and Train-the-Trainer. The first course, Spanish Leadership I, will take place March 11–16.
