What’s a steward?

Your steward is part customer service rep and part advocate. If you have a question, need more information about the union, or about a situation on the job, ask your steward. Regardless of the issue, your steward will work on the union member's behalf to find the right answers or resolve the problem. That could take many forms, from listening and working with you one-on-one, to an informal conversation with a supervisor, or a formal grievance. Want to know more? Talk to your steward.
