The Covid pandemic prevents us from gathering for face-to-face steward training but we are pleased to offer this interim Steward Basics webinar. This webinar is for you if you are a steward but have not yet attended our Steward Fundamentals course or need a refresher.


DATE:  April 14 & 15, 2021 TIME: 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.


Register here


As space is limited, registrations are being accepted on a first come, first-served basis. The deadline for registration is March 30, 2021.


By the end of this webinar, you will understand:

→ your rights and responsibilities as a steward

→ how to get started as a steward

→ the grievance procedure

→ how to handle disciplinary grievances


This webinar does not replace our in-person STEP UP!, Steward Fundamentals or other courses and workshops. Once we can offer these in-person courses and workshops safely, you will be invited to register for them.


To join this online training, you will need:


→ a computer with internal audio or external speakers, a microphone and built-in camera

→ a high-speed internet connection

→ a relatively quiet space, a pad of paper and a pen and a copy of your collective agreement


*It is possible but very challenging to do this on a smartphone.


You can request a union-paid leave of absence from your employer for this training. We will send you a leave-of-absence form to submit to your supervisor.


Please call the area office at 1‑800‑667‑1997 if you have any questions or concerns
