The North American Transportation Employee Relations Association ("NATERA") is a national association established to provide a forum for the creation, exchange and dissemination of ideas and information concerning human resources and labor relations matters, issues, regulations, legislation and current laws.
The objectives of the organization are:
To enhance the productivity of all employees in the transportation industry.
To minimize the risk of financial loss resulting from uninformed employment decisions.
To enhance the employment environment for all employees in the transportation industry resulting in an image which will attract the highest quality of employees.
To promote, encourage and contribute to the attainment of the highest degree of professionalism by transportation executives and management personnel.
NATERA is the sum of all its parts: labor relations, personnel, human resources, industrial relations, legal counsel, as well as other executives and management personnel in the trucking industry. By understanding NATERA's purpose and objectives we hope every trucking professional will consider this an open invitation to join the Association. As with any trade organization whose principle aim is to serve its members, NATERA will become as strong as its members make it.
