Are you interested in learning more about our contract? Want to help your fellow union members navigate potential issues in the workplace? You should become a steward: a member of the union who is trained to help workers navigate potential contract violations on the job. We are holding a winter steward training that will be spread out over 6 weeks. The steward training will allow you to learn more about the union, our contract, and the role of a steward so that you can work with and support workers who are potentially having issues on the job. The 6 hour-long sessions will be on Thursdays at 6pm from January 7-February 11. They will cover the topics of: What is a union and how does it work?; What is a steward?; What is our contract – the KU Memorandum of Agreement?; What is a grievance?
You can attend any individual session if you’re interested in learning about a particular topic, or you can attend all the sessions (or a majority) to become qualified as a steward. If you are interested in signing up for our winter steward training session(s), please fill out the form below: https://docs.google.com/…/1FAIpQLSfSEgY8srY…/viewform… or email Grievance Chair, Hannah Bailey, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions (or if this timeframe doesn’t work for you–we might be able to schedule alternate times if enough people have conflicts).
