Are you interested in helping out in the local and possibly being a Steward? Are you curious about what Stewards do other than filing grievances? Are you already a Steward and want some or some more training? Then these are the courses for you!  The Stewards Series provides training and information on all aspects of the work that Local Stewards do and contribute to helping a Local Executive and Local members. We are combining two modules from Tier 1 into this one-day course. See below for the module learning objectives.
