Area 12 - Steward Fundamentals
Your Home Your City, BC V8V 3K5 Canada
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.
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 does not replace our in-person STEP UP! and Steward Fundamentals courses. Once we can offer these in-person courses 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
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.
As in the past, you will still be eligible for a leave of absence that needs approval from your supervisor. This means that you would be paid your regular wage, if you are scheduled to work that day, and the Union will reimburse your employer.
