Local Rep Resources and Training
Local Rep Manual
The Local Rep Manual provides an overview of the role of the Local Rep. It also includes information on the grievance and arbitration procedure.
Below you will find resources to welcome New Members to the PEA. The PEA office will send you updated members lists as new members are added to our system. If you become aware of a new member in your jurisdiction, please let the PEA know.
Local Reps met on June 10, 2019 to review the local rep curriculum. Local Reps can review the presentation here (log-in required).
