Catalyst Paper – Learn, Grow and Lead by Becoming a Job Steward
March 10, 2022
To: All MoveUP members at Catalyst Paper
Our job stewards occupy the most valuable roles in our union. Stewards provide workplace leadership and information, insight and understanding to the staff and elected representatives at the MoveUP office. They offer support and guidance to their co-workers, keep little problems from becoming big ones, and help make the workplace function smoothly.
Becoming a job steward is a rewarding experience. It’s an opportunity to help and support your colleagues, while learning valuable skills. As a steward you will learn about how to interpret your collective agreement and ensure your co-workers’ rights under this agreement are protected.
MoveUP offers regular opportunities for training to learn all the skills needed, which include conflict resolution and a deeper understanding of your collective agreement. Just recently we re-develop our Job Steward training materials to make them more current and pertinent.
We’re looking for people we can train to be top-notch workplace advocates. We want to make sure you and your co-workers get all the info and support you need.
Please read our online member guide “What is a Job Steward and How do I Become One?” and consider putting your name forward.
If you are interested in becoming a steward or learning more about the role, please email Christy Slusarenko at firstname.lastname@example.org.
