This class will focus on the personal and organizational challenges to being a steward, emphasizing the importance of the steward to the Organizing Model of Unionism. The class will look at personality adjustments for stewards and will describe ways for expanding communications and union visibility. We will stress the importance of a steward in building the union and not just as a grievance-filer and will share Best Union Practices from several locals.
This is the first of two classes for new stewards. The second will cover the procedures for presenting great grievances.
Bill Barry will be the instructor.
