Basic Steward Training (3 days)
Stewards play a vital role in the union. Particularly important is the steward's role in contract interpretation, organizing and the grievance procedure. In recognition of the need for educating new stewards in these areas, HSA is offering 3-day Basic Steward Training workshops at the HSA office as follows:
Date: June 1-3, 2020
Time: 9 am – 4:30 pm
Location: HSA Office, 180 East Columbia Street, New Westminster

The focus of these training sessions is for new, inexperienced HSA chief, assistant or general stewards who have not attended Basic Steward Training in the past.  The workshop will familiarize new stewards with the structure of HSA and promote skills to enable stewards to function confidently in their role. Workshop content includes:

  • how HSA works as a union
  • role of the steward
  • advocacy skills
  • leadership skills
  • contract interpretation
  • grievance handling    

Reimbursement for Travel Expenses:

Participants traveling on approved HSA business are reimbursed for receipted travel expenses.
Unless otherwise approved, HSA pays for participant's travel (mileage or alternate fare, and wage replacement) in the way that is most reasonable and least expensive overall.
When a member uses his/her personal vehicle for travel, reimbursement will be at the rate equivalent to maximum Canada Customs and Revenue Agency (CCRA) non-taxable allowance effective January 1, 2020.
HSA will reimburse for all public transit.

We look forward to seeing you!
