Steward Fundamentals is a two -day foundation-level course for all stewards. It focuses 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 interactions with members and the employer.
This course is for elected stewards and local offices 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.
A union paid leaves-of-absence is provided for this course. Travel, meals and accommodation, if required, are also provided. Lunch will be provided for the days you are in class.
