FREE SEMINARS SERIES
FOR RAILROADERS & THEIR FAMILIES
To help eductate railroaders and their families concerning their rights under the FELA - Federal Employers' Liability Act, the railroad injury attorneys of Hoey & Farina offer three free seminars: The New Hires Seminar, The Arbitration Advocacy Skills Seminar and The Family Members Seminar.
HOEY & FARINA'S NEW HIRES SEMINAR
The New Hires Seminar is an important informational tool to help put new railroaders on the right track and introduces the new hire employee to the demands of working in the rail industry. Topics covered include: what U.S. Railroad Retirement Board and insurance benefits you are entitled to when injured; completing a personal injury report; a railroader’s rights under the FELA; how railroad arbitration and the FELA work together and much more. Each New Hire Seminars is approximately 90 minutes long. Spouses are encouraged to attend.
How To Organize A New Hires Seminar: Whether you are a local officer or a New Hire, if you are interested in organizing a New Hires Seminar in your area, please contact our office at email@example.com or call 1-888-425-1212.
HOEY & FARINA'S ARBITRATION ADVOCACY SKILLS SEMINAR
The purpose of the Arbitration Advocacy Skills Seminar is to help you understand the arbitration process and utilize it to your advantage.
Alan J. Fisher, who served as a federal arbitrator for the National Mediation Board for nine years, will share his insights as to how you can develop and improve your advocacy skills so that you will be better prepared for a formal investigation. He will also provide guidelines as to how to develop the record on the property for its presentation to the arbitrator. The program is designed to help local chairmen represent the charged employee, as well as educate the membership, especially new hires, about the Railway Labor Act and the arbitration process.
We encourage all local railroad union officers from all crafts at your location to attend the seminar together. Our experience has shown that an all-crafts seminar fosters solidarity and helps establish "a network of information" concerning union matters and rail operations at the location. The information network can be very helpful during contract negotiations or resolving grievance matters.
OUTLINE FOR ARBITRATION ADVOCACY SKILLS SEMINAR
How To Organize An Arbitration Advocacy Skills Seminar: The Arbitration Advocacy Skills Seminar takes approximately two hours. Seminars are sponsored by Hoey & Farina at no cost to you or your local, lodge, or division. If you are interested in Mr. Fisher conducting a seminar for your general committee, local, lodge, or division, please call our office at 1-888-425-1212 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. After you request information, Mr. Fisher will contact you to organize an Arbitration Advocacy Skills Seminar.
The purpose of the Family Members Seminar is to help your loved ones understand what must be done if you have been seriously injured or killed at work.
Representatives of our office discuss this topic at union meetings and at seminars that we sponsor specifically for the railroad workers. We believe, however, that it is equally important that family members know what rights they have, what benefits they are entitled to and what steps must be immediately taken to preserve evidence and why. Further, family members need to know that Worker Compensation laws do not cover railroad workers, and that the claim agents work for the railroads, not for the injured railroad workers and their families.
Our seminar provides family members with the information they need to know now, to be able to make necessary informed decisions to protect their and your future financial well being.

How To Organize A Family Members Seminar: If you are interested in organizing a Family Members Seminar, please contact our office at email@example.com or call 1-888-425-1212.
