Area 03 STEP UP: An intro to the BCGEU for newly elected and returning stewards
130 2920 Virtual Way Vancouver, BC V5M 4X3 Canada
To ensure continuity of service during the COVID-19 pandemic, all BCGEU offices are closed and staff are working remotely to assist members. We recommend that you email the appropriate office if you require assistance.
STEP UP, our new introductory, one-day course, will introduce you to the BCGEU, explore our common values, union culture, and our diverse community of members. Through stories of solidarity and courage, you will gain the strength and support you need to begin your journey as a new or returning steward. Along the way, you will learn about your fundamental union rights and useful union tools and strategies for getting started in your role. Newly elected and returning stewards will leave feeling more informed, confident and ready to support a member through a Step 1 grievance. This course is the first step on our new learning pathway for stewards
Your Union leave of absence for this course will be sent to you shortly. Please ensure you have presented it to your Supervisor/Employer for approval as soon as possible. The Union does not do this for you.
