Shop stewards are members of our local who represent and protect the interests and rights of the membership and act as a liaison between the union and management.
Shop stewards are available to assist members in understanding their rights and in the handling of grievances at Step 1. At the employee’s request, a Shop Steward may attend a conduct and discipline meeting between an employee and management.
Per our By-Laws, Shop Stewards shall be elected on the job in the month of November on a job and area basis as appropriate for the existing work situation.
