Attached is the registration package for the upcoming Region 6 Stewards Orientation course being held virtually via Zoom on February 22 and 23, 2022.
Stewards 1: Making a Difference in the Workplace
This updated version (March 2015) of Stewards 1 includes a more detailed description and history of OPSEU’s equity-seeking groups. The course continues to support stewards through a range of tools and practical activities. The key aims are to strengthen steward skills to orient a new employee to the union, have effective one-on-one conversations with a cross-section of members, develop a communications strategy to enlist diverse member involvement, and develop approaches to everyday workplace problems.
Throughout the course, participants are supported as they develop a profile of their members, clarify the tasks of the steward, find the resources and information in OPSEU, and understand the grievance process and their role in it. Stewards 1 is a prerequisite to Stewards 2 and must be completed before taking Stewards 2. Participants should bring their collective agreements.
Attendance Form and Human Rights Accommodation Requests are to be submitted to Jessica Sviezikas at the Sudbury Regional Office by February 7, 2022 by 12:00 pm.
Applicants will be notified after February 7, 2022 of their acceptance for the educational.
