Stewards

What does a Union Steward Do?

Union stewards must obtain basic training before they can properly act and support the members. Education is provided by AUPE headquarters and is free to members. Stewards can help with:

  1. Interpretation of the collective agreement for members at their work-site.
  2. Assistance with issues on the work-site such as harassment, unfair discipline or denial of benefits for which you are entitled.
  3. Ensure the employer lives up to the terms of the collective agreement.
  4. Represent members at investigations and disciplinary meetings.
  5. Act as a work-site contact.
  6. File a grievance if necessary.

If discipline happens, you have the right to ask for a steward to be present. Union stewards want to help you and most volunteer for this work because they care about the membership. Get to know who your stewards are and familiarize yourself with our Collective Agreement so you can ask questions.

Can I choose who I want as my Union Representative?

Yes, you should be the one selecting and arranging your Union representative. If you arrive at a meeting and the Union Steward or Membership Services Officer is already present, you have a right to refuse that representation, and request the meeting be rescheduled allowing you time to find the representation of your choice.
