Stewards

Stewards networkWelcome to the Stewards Network at psacbc.com

This is a collection of all the Steward-related information and posts on the website - click below for more files and topics.

The Steward is the visible presence of the union in the workplace as the union officer who works with and interacts with the members at the workplace and represents them in a specific work area.

The Steward enforces the collective agreement and protects the rights members have acquired through negotiations and other union actions. Stewards are elected or appointed within the Local. The Steward is a key person in the union and helps ensure PSAC Locals are strong, representative and successful in protecting membership rights.

For more information about the Steward's Network, contact Dave Jackson in the Victora Regional Office at (250) 953-1050 or 1 (866) 953-1050.

On May 1st PSAC members across BC will congregate outside of their worksites and hold signs that say "Standing Together for Public Services, Standing Together for Fairness”. It’s time to send a message to the government: We are united, ready and committed to defending our collective agreements, public services, and our working conditions.Why? Because we know this government is determined to try to take away as many of our negotiated benefits as possible.  That’s the example they’re setting.

Grievance time lines are one of the most important elements of problem solving. If we miss the initial filing of a grievance or the transmittal of grievances between levels we shortchange one or more of our members. In order to avoid this happening we have updated and posted several grievance time line flowcharts, more will follow for other bargaining units.
