Shop Steward Orientation (Online!)

has tags but is NOT members only

Is fairness at work important to you?

Are you interested in learning more about your rights and sharing knowledge with your co-workers? If so, we want you to consider becoming a Shop Steward.

Shop Stewards are the representatives of the Union in the workplace. You can read more about the role of the steward here.

We are currently recruiting Shop Stewards in most workplaces. Contact your Chief Shop Steward or Local President for details on becoming a Steward in your Local. Contact information is on the Local page of the website.

After you become an official steward for your Local, you'll join us for this course. It will give you the knowledge and skills to be an effective advocate for your co-workers. Shop Stewards develop leadership, communication, problem-solving and analysis skills which are useful skills for other parts of your life. 

We'll be meeting online by Zoom over 4 sessions. Each session is 2 hours. To participate, you'll need a computer with internet and a quiet place. After this course, new Shop Stewards will receive mentoring with experienced Stewards and access to many advanced workshops and training.

Our sessions are: September 7, 9, 14, 16 from 10am to Noon 

All YEU education is free with no loss of pay for members taking courses on their work time.
