Local 888 Shop Stewards are one of our most important communications links. Our Shop Stewards volunteer their time to work with Local 888’s Union Delegates and our members. Our Shop Stewards are on the front-line everyday at your shop to help Local 888 members with questions regarding their contract and on-the-job concerns. They also play a key role in helping our members with off-the-job emergencies by working with Local 888’s Emergency Assistance Program and Delegates.
Each year Local 888 has a Shop Steward Seminar with an exciting and highly informational agenda to educate them on how to be better Shop Stewards. Topics discussed with our designated Shop Stewards include handling and investigating grievances, servicing new members, retirement planning, medical and dental, prescription drug coverage, vision screening, organizing, politics, and many others. It is important that our Shop Stewards carry this information back to their co-workers to ensure a strong and educated workforce.
This year’s Shop Steward Seminar will take place on November 3, 2017.
We look forward to seeing our Shop Stewards and having a great seminar.
