Stewards are mentors and advocates for union members with questions or concerns at work. We organize members to address issues as a group instead of dealing with them alone. We accompany and support members in meetings with management to ensure a fair process in which everyone is heard. Our training program gives stewards the skills, knowledge and resources to make us effective advocates and organizers at work. Trainings are held every month; contact your Union Representative to sign up for the next class.
If you are interested in becoming a Union Steward or Leader, please contact your Union Rep.
The Stewards Book outlines stewards’ various duties and responsibilities in the workplace. Chapters range from “Dealing with Management” to “The Steward as Political Organizer.” Check out the entire manual by clicking here.
