A workshop on Public Employer Labor Relations will be held on February 5, 2014, prior to the 28th Annual Civil Service Workshop on February 6-7, 2014. Both workshops will be held at the Hilton Palacio Del Rio Hotel in San Antonio. The programs are co-sponsored by the Texas Municipal Human Resources Association (TMHRA) and the Texas Public Employer Labor Relations Association (TxPELRA).
Enrollment for both workshops is limited to human resources professionals and management representatives from Texas municipal governments (for example, the city manager’s office, the city attorney’s office, civil service commissioners, the human resources department, the police department, and the fire department).
BENEFITS OF ATTENDING
The TxPELRA and Civil Service Workshops offer a broad developmental experience for all participants, no matter their level of knowledge or experience. There will be opportunities in each session to ask questions about administering the State Civil Service Law in your city and legislation on collective bargaining and meet and confer for public safety. In addition to the formal program, you will have the opportunity to network with others who share similar problems and challenges. The speakers are experts in their fields and have extensive experience in civil service, labor relations, or human resources management. This year’s programs promise to be two of the best in the 28-year history of the workshops.
