2015 Basic Steward Training

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:

Dates:
May 11 - 13, 2015
June 1 - 3, 2015

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 received no previous training from HSA.

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

Stewards can register by logging into My Events Registration. The workshops will be listed under Steward Education events.
