Roles of  The Shop Steward

  • Stewards are elected by the members they represent. 


Core responsibilities include:

  • Listen for and identify member’s issues and carry these to the Unit Stewards/committee.

  • Communicate union information to members, including local executive decisions affecting members

  • Attend unit committee/steward meetings 

  • Do basic preparation and investigation on grievances arising from members

  • Represent members in step 1 meetings (initiating the grievance) and other meetings.

  • Collaborate with your Unit Steward and Executive to assist members 


Stewards will form a network and be supported to better learn their role and the collective agreement.

Stewards may expand their core responsibilities to other areas including health and safety, bargaining, Labour management committees, building links outside the local. Participation in Educational Sessions/Weekends are required.
