Stewarding – An Introduction (2 day workshop). Register today!


Registration is now open for Stewarding – An Introduction (2 day workshop). This workshop is for stewards or those members who are interested in becoming a steward. CUPE 2081 is looking for new stewards. This is a great opportunity to learn about this role before taking the next step to becoming a steward.

What does a CUPE steward do? If you are a new steward (or interested in becoming a steward) and want to learn how to help CUPE members solve workplace problems, this introductory workshop is for you!

In this workshop you will learn:

  • investigating workplace problems
  • filing a grievance
  • meeting with management
  • dealing with workplace complaints

This is the first course required before you begin taking courses in the Steward Learning Series (SLS). Those members who go onto the Steward Learning Series can work toward earning a Steward Learning Series Certificate.

  • Friday, Oct 27 & Saturday, Oct 28
  • 9:00am – 4:00pm (estimate time; to be confirmed)
  • Participants MUST attend both days.

The union will request union leave with your supervisor for all members who sign-up for the workshop.  We require 10 days’ notice before the workshop in order to do this.
