MSUWC Call Center Representatives Lead the Way at the 2017 Inter-Union Gas Conference
10/03/2017 - 12:00pm

On September 18th and 19th, 2017, two MSUWC members, Melissa Bateman, Local 107 Steward, and Brooke Lauber, Local 129 Financial Secretary, facilitated the Clerical Workshop at the 2017 Inter-Union Gas Conference. The annual Gas Conference, which is attended by members and representatives from the Utility Workers Union of America, United Steelworkers, IBEW, UA, ICWU/UFCW, and UNIFOR, was hosted in 2017 by the IBEW in Portland, Oregon. UWUA National Region IV Representative, Jim Gennett, who served on the Gas Conference’s planning committee, relied on the MSUWC leadership of Melissa and Brooke when planning the Clerical Workshop.  Once again, the Clerical Workshop was a highlight of the conference with call center representative from the U.S. and Canada sharing their experiences and industry trends affecting call centers.  The conversation focused predominantly on the decreased focus on customer service by utility companies.  Other topics discussed included performance standards, service levels, staffing levels, contractors, and ergonomics.  The MSUWC is extremely proud of Melissa and Brooke and the leadership they provide.
