Stewards are responsible for serving as organizers and points of contact for their department. They help encourage people to join the union, spread information about upcoming events, direct department members to union resources, and help organize the ASE/Postdocs in the department for collective actions that protect and expand our workplace rights. With the guidance of the contract enforcement committee, they can also represent and support colleagues through the grievance procedure if issues arise. Stewards receive training and support for both of these roles, so there’s no prior experience needed.

If you have questions about the position or your eligibility, please feel free to contact us at elections@uaw.org, and we can help put you in contact with a current steward to chat with. All Steward positions will last until September 2022.
