Steward Fundamentals is a two-day foundation-level course for all Stewards or Local Officers within Area 08 who have not previously taken the Basic Steward Training in the past five years. We recommend that stewards and local officers take the one-day STEP UP course before taking Steward Fundamentals.

Steward Fundamentals focusses on the essential skills every steward needs to know. Through discussion and interactive group activities, you will be introduced to the key roles and responsibilities of a steward as advocate, educator, organizer, and communicator. Stewards will leave feeling more confident and effective in their role and skillful in their interaction with members and the employer.

A union-paid leave-of-absence (LOA) and lunch is provided for both days of the workshop. Mileage to travel and potentially accommodation if you live more than 100 kms from the office, may also be provided.

Lunch will be provided, so please advise the area office of any dietary restrictions.

If you have any questions, please contact us at the Area 08 office: (250) 426-5459 or [email protected].
