Steward training are held throughout the year. Training are for both those who are already Stewards and those wanting to become one. Training are usually a full day of skill building and workshops. Trainees receive a specially developed Stewards Manual.
Topics to be covered include:
- Role of a union Steward
- Legal rights of a union Steward
- Solving workplace problems
Once a year, usually in the fall, UFCW 21 holds our Stewards Conference for all Stewards to gather, learn from each other, and develop skills, build deeper solidarity, and make connections with fellow union members from across the state.
If you are interested in becoming a Steward or have questions, contact your Union Representative.
