Stewards & Councillors
As a Steward or Councilor in your workplace, you are the spokesperson for your union. You are a vital link between the membership and the elected leadership. You speak for your fellow members in the day to day relations between our union and management. For many members who don’t attend union meetings, you may be the only union representative with whom they come in contact.
In the course of your work as a Steward or Councilor, many questions will arise. The following links provide some practical information and general resources for all COPE 378 Stewards and Councilors. Workplace specific resources are accessible via “Your Workplace”.
