AFSCME Launches Online Leadership Academy

AFSCME has launched a new e-learning platform called the AFSCME Online Leadership Academy, which will provide high-quality training and leadership development for AFSCME leaders, stewards, and staff, allowing them to enhance their union activism anywhere, at any time. 

There are already five self-paced courses available now in an online series titled “Steward Fundamentals.” This series will benefit both new and existing stewards, covering topics such as The Steward as Organizer, 5 Steps of Grievance Handling, Solving Workplace Problems with Worker Power, Weingarten Rights, and the Duty of Fair Representation. Additional topics will be added in the coming months.

To access the courses, go to and create a new user account.

If you have any questions or require assistance in getting started, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Online Leadership Academy team at 202-429-1256 or [email protected].
