Our local union’s stewards serve on the “front lines” in the fight for respect and dignity on the job. That’s why we’ve organized a training workshop for new and experienced stewards that is open to all AFT Connecticut-affiliated unions:
WHEN: Thursday, February 2 from 5:00 to 7:00PM.
WHERE: Second floor Soifer Conference Room at AFT Connecticut headquarters, located at 35 Marshall Road in Rocky Hill.
HOW: Click here to RSVP online — there is no cost for members to participate, but pre-registration is requested since light dinner will be served.
This course for veteran and new stewards alike covers all the basics, including:
  • explaining what a union is and how it works;
  • greeting new members;
  • building mobilization skills
  • investigating grievances; and
  • detailing the Duty of Fair Representation.
