Become a Steward

Worker rights are human rights! Having a trained union member at the workplace who understands the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) is important to ensure your rights are protected.

"Stewards make our union stronger! We help educate our co-workers on how to defend our rights and the responsibilities we have as union members.."

"Being a union steward is very important because you help many people. Sometimes there are members who struggle with English and it's easier to defend yourself when you have a steward by your side. "

Role of a Steward

The CBA allows for a certain number of stewards at your workplace. If there is no steward there, we can begin the process to get one elected. If there already is a steward at your location, there’s a chance there’s a slot for an additional one. Contact your union rep for more information.
