Regional Resource Assistants (RRAs)

Regional Resource Assistants

The APWU has established a Regional Resource Assistant (RRA) training program for issues related to the Office of Workers Compensation Programs (OWCP) and on-the-job injuries.

Twenty APWU members were recommended by their local presidents and have officially been appointed as RRAs by APWU National President Mark Dimondstein.

The Injury Compensation Basic Training Program provided by the Department of Labor (DOL) equips the nationally appointed RRAs with the knowledge and tools needed to assist locals nationwide in order to provide proper advice and effective assistance to workers within the APWU family. All APWU RRAs will have gone through the formal training and certification processes provided by the DOL to deliver effective and knowledgeable training on those specific issues.

The RRAs will provide training sessions and presentations to local, state, and regional union offices (including members at local union meetings) for issues related to on-the-job injuries and OWCP upon request.

Local, state, and regional offices may request RRA training sessions by contacting Human Relations Director Daleo Freeman at: Members should contact their local/ state union representatives for all issues related to OWCP.
