Our Local holds Steward Training sessions for everyone interested in learning
about grievance handling, and other aspects of being a shop steward. Please contact us

Having a union and a contract should not be confused with having an outside organization solve
our problems for us. We
are the union, and a system of Stewards is an important part of that self-empowerment.
Our Stewards have been instrumental in resolving many grievances. This reinforces the importance of making
sure we all work to have adjunct and part-time faculty involvement within every university department.
goal is to have Stewards from every department. If your department does not have a Steward, you can help by becoming one yourself,
or by helping us find someone to nominate.
