Stewards Training

Stewards training is one of the services that we are most often asked for. We have provided stewards training to many unions over the years. We have also offered multi-union and open-enrollment stewards training.

While we tailor the details of our stewards training to the needs of the particuar union with whom we are working, all our basic stewards workshops include several core features:

  • The Steward's job: the roles, legal rights and responsibilities of stewards
  • Grievance Handling
  • Alternative strategies when a grievance is not appropriate or not enough

A basic stewards training may take from 1 day to 2 or 3, depending on how much time the union members have available.

We can also offer additional training on specialized or more advanced topics. Some examples are:

"Mobilizing your Members"
"Building a Communications Structure"
"Weingarten Rights, Garrity Rights and Workload Issues" (put together at the request of a public employee local)
