Steward’s Corner

Local 8’s Shop Stewards play a vital in building a strong union workplace and protecting all workers.  Stewards represent workers in meetings with management that could lead to discipline, help mobilize co-workers to take action, introduce the union to new employees and much more. The Local 8 Shop Steward Committee meets several times a year.
