Union Relations Webinar Registration Information to Come

One webinar per week on a subject of special interest to textile services operators is scheduled as September draws to an end and October begins thanks to TRSA and partners who urge you to gather several colleagues around a desktop computer with you to take advantage of these presentations’ information sharing, networking convenience and value.

Commercial Laundry Meets Social Media, 11 a.m. ET, Wednesday, Sept. 28. More of your key contacts are spending time on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to genuinely engage with friends, family members, colleagues and suppliers. Your company can enhance its presence on these sites easily and inexpensively to expose your brand to your targets while they are on these sites for other purposes. Plus you can lure them to your social media content, another way of developing personal relationships with them on their own terms. Such voluntary engagement is said to create loyal, high-spending customers. This presentation by UniformMarket News and endorsed by TRSA is open at no charge to all uniform rental/sale, industrial laundry and linen supply company owners, executives and managers.

Not All FR Garments Are Created Equal, 2 p.m. ET, Wednesday, Oct. 5. A flame-resistant apparel item ought to be durable in two respects. Its FR capabilities need to last as long as the item. And it should exhibit tensile strength for resistance to tears and abrasion while boasting attributes that lend to sturdy construction such as reliable snaps and bar tacks, tight stitching and reinforced seams. Mark Saner, technical manager, Workrite Uniform Co., will discuss keys to determining whether the design and specifications of a particular FR garment will properly suit the wearer to whom you plan to provide it. This webinar is free and open only to TRSA members.

Effectively Managing a Unionized Workforce in a Volatile Economy, Noon ET, Monday, Oct. 10. In unionized textile services facilities it’s a daily requirement for supervisors, managers and other members of your team to follow union rules. This second installment in a four-part series from the Offit Kurman law firm will offer advice on contending with the long-run challenges of implementing collective bargaining agreements. Presented by the CSC Network, the series is open at no cost to TRSA and CSC members. If you missed the first installment, click here for its recording.
