The purpose of these online Introduction to Stewarding workshops is to bring new stewards to understand the basics of their work and role within their union.

This three-hour workshop, via Zoom, will give new stewards an introduction to the following topics:

  • The Duty of Fair Representation, under which stewards and the unions operate
  • What are the roles of stewards in general?
  • The six W’s/getting the facts
  • Basic grievance writing

Because this is a shortened version of the Introduction to Stewarding workshop offered by CUPE Education Branch, it cannot be used as a prerequisite for participation and attendance in workshops from the Steward Learning Series. Participants will not receive a certificate of completion for CUPE’s Introduction to Stewarding.

Materials will be sent to your home address – please provide your home mailing address when registering. Please register as early as possible to ensure receipt of materials.

Please have a copy of your collective agreement available for reference.

Note: Registrants will be emailed a link to the “Zoom” meeting the day before the webinar to the email provided at registration.
