We Need You!

Your Union works best when there is a Steward in every workplace.  A Steward understands the unique issues of that workplace, so they are best qualified to represent those members.

As we want a Steward for every workplace, we are asking members to consider volunteering to be Stewards. If you are interested, please contact anyone of your local executives for further assistance.
