Stewards Toolbox

The role of Union Steward is an important one and not to be treated lightly. As the ambassador of the Union you are responsible for the following:

  • Lead by example.  You must act professionally, work smart, work hard, and treat everyone equally and with respect.
  • Introduce yourself to all Boilermakers and identify yourself as the job Steward. This displays a union presence on the job
  • Communicate with the members on a regular basis.
  • Communicate regularly with the area Business Representative
  • Be the Unions safety representative. Take part in Joint Health and Safety Committee meetings, relay information between the members and the contractor and vice-versa
  • Monitor layoffs, quits, dismissals, transfers, name hires, apprenticeship ratios, absenteeism and poor craftsmanship
  • Encourage members to attend monthly Union meetings and vote in elections. Attend meetings yourself.
  • Know the contract you are working under. Ensure that the contract is followed, both by the contractor and the Union members
  • Be the first contact for health and wellness related issues. If a member expresses a need or appears in need, be there. Contact your local Business Representative if needed
  • Be the eyes for the Union regarding jurisdiction. Contact your Business Representative with any questions or concerns
  • Become familiar with the Contractors disciplinary/worksite rules. Be armed with knowledge of the rules and facts of the situation when representing a worker at a disciplinary meeting
