What is a Union Steward?
A Union Steward is one of your co-workers who volunteers their time to help employees with issues that arise at work. Depending on the size of your workplace, you might have one Steward or you might have a number of Stewards.
Your Steward(s) assists your Union Representative. Your Union Rep is a full-time staff member at the Union who deals with grievances, arbitrations, negotiations, and much more.
