Learn, Grow and Lead by Becoming a Job Steward

June 12, 2019

To: MoveUP Members at V.P. Credit Union

Currently, your worksite does not have a job steward.  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. In bargaining, they make sure the needs of the members are represented at the table to ensure you have the best collective agreement possible.

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 your and your co-workers’ rights, and how to stand up to make sure members in your workplace are treated fairly. MoveUP offers regular opportunities for training to learn all the skills needed, which include conflict resolution and a deeper understanding of your collective agreement.

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 Shelley Lockhart at slockhart@moveuptogether.ca.

In solidarity,

Christy Slusarenko, Vice-President
