Program representatives are the liaisons between each residency/fellow program and RFPU-NW. At most unions, these are referred to as union stewards. Each program has a minimum of one. These are volunteer, non-elected positions. They answer resident questions, escalate to the board when necessary, and communicate with the residents regarding RFPU-NW news.

If you’re experiencing any issues in your program or have questions about the union, your program representative is a great resource.

If you’re interested in signing up as a program representative, reach out to admin@rfpu.org and we will chat with you about what this entails. Program representatives are welcome to join on at any point in the year.
