The position of job steward is the most important position in a union and is often the first point of contact a member has with their union. You stand with and speak for your fellow members in the day-to-day relations between the union and management in your workplace. This course will lay the foundation for your understanding of the responsibilities of a job steward and will help broaden your understanding of the labour movement.
