2016 Basic Steward Training

Stewards play a vital role in the union. Particularly important is the steward's role in contract interpretation, organizing and the grievance procedure. In recognition of the need for educating new stewards in these areas, HSA is offering four 3-day Basic Steward Training workshops at the HSA office as follows:

Dates: 
January 11–13, 2016
January 25-27, 2016
February 22–24, 2016
April 11-13, 2016

Location: HSA Office, 180 East Columbia Street, New Westminster

The focus of these training sessions is for new, inexperienced HSA chief, assistant or general stewards who have received no previous training from HSA. Enrolment is limited, so experienced stewards or safety stewards who have attended previous workshops may only attend if there is space in the workshop.

The workshop will familiarize new stewards with the structure of HSA and promote skills to enable stewards to function confidently in their role. Workshop content includes:

  • how HSA works as a union
  • role of the steward
  • advocacy skills
  • leadership skills
  • contract interpretation
  • grievance handling

Stewards can register by logging into My Events Registration. The workshops will be listed under Steward Education events.
