Become a Steward and Lead Your Union

Union stewards are the backbone of our union. Stewards provide the front-line contract enforcement work to ensure that represented staff have a voice in their workplace, that the contract is respected, and that we are building power and justice in our daily work. From public employee worksites to Homecare and Personal Support Work to nursing homes, stewards are growing our union as an essential piece of what makes us strong. For our union to continue to win victories like great contracts, a new generation of stewards has to come forward and take these leadership positions.

To empower stewards, we have dozens of Contract Enforcement Trainings around the state all year. These trainings will give you important skills like how to write and file grievances and information requests, how to support a coworker during a Weingarten meeting, and how to organize around an issue. Each of these trainings are conducted with the support of our experts in the Member Resource Center (MRC) or our Contract Specialists, who are there to empower you to become a leader. #1u #seiu503 #unionstrong
