MEA-MFT Field Services
Where the rubber hits the road
MEA-MFT members are dedicated folks who work hard for the Montana people they serve. They deserve fair salaries, benefits, and working conditions.
MEA-MFT’s field consultants provide frontline assistance and training for MEA-MFT members, leaders, and local affiliates across Montana, helping with local bargaining and contract enforcement.
Our 12 field consultants and four associate field staff, in four field offices across the state, directly assist MEA-MFT’s nearly 300 local bargaining units. Their expert advice and hands-on assistance are just a phone call or e-mail away.
MEA-MFT field consultants directly help locals with issues related to bargaining, salary schedules, mediation, fact-finding, grievance arbitrations, local organizing, and contract enforcement.
Our field consultants also offer training to local affiliates on more than 40 different topics. To name a few:
membership recruitment and retention
organizing a bargaining team
writing proposals and counterproposals
identifying a bargaining strategy
organizing a local mill levy or electoral campaign
