Non Executive/Chief Steward

Union stewards represent departments, shifts, and work sites. They monitor collective-bargaining agreements, advise employees on contract provisions, confront employers over safety issues, and represent employees in grievance proceedings. A steward's job is important and exciting.

Chief Steward         Roles & Responsibilities

You are a workplace leader who represents ATU Local 1593, coordinates Stewards, and enforces the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). You work collectively with stewards, elected leaders, and ATU staff in your workplace, bargaining unit, and sector. You also deal with management on behalf of the union.  As Chief Steward, you fulfill the duties of a Steward, but also work with other Stewards in your zone to do the following:

Communication: Encourage Stewards to approach you with questions about processes, contract interpretation, and reports of workplace conflicts and issues. Advise Stewards and other members about union activities and advise bargaining unit and sector leaders about workplace developments. Ensure new member orientations are occurring as needed. Ensure you have a strong relationship with the assigned ATU Labor Relations Officer. Inform Stewards and members about changes in or interpretation of the CBA or as well as relevant arbitration decisions. Be accessible to Stewards by telephone or in person.

Conflict Resolution: Assist in resolving conflicts between members and Stewards or between members and the employer. Be knowledgeable about both workplace and union harassment policies and procedures. Encourage Stewards to talk to you when they encounter harassment in the union or in the workplace, and work with Stewards and/or the ATU Labor Relations Officer to resolve the problem.

Hold regular meetings of all Stewards. Topics should include current workplace issues, barriers facing equity-group Stewards, discrimination/harassment of Stewards in the union and the workplace, and strategies to address issues. Work to dispel, not encourage, rumors.

Grievance Co-ordination: Assign complaints and grievances to Stewards in your zone, considering ~ Stewards’ specialized knowledge of the chance for new Stewards to gain experience of the need to prevent Steward burn-out.  Respect members’ right to work with the Steward of their choice. Assist Stewards, as needed, in writing and investigating grievances properly, and in judging whether a complaint is a grievance.  In communications with the ATU Labor Relations Officer, keep track of filed grievances and ensure the necessary tasks are completed.  Inform Stewards that all grievances are to be fully investigated to identify any violations of the collective agreement and/or any other statutes or laws, before being filed. Educate Stewards on the internal appeal processes.  Ensure contract enforcement by: Not agreeing to any deal that violates the provisions in the CBA or any other rights defined in a statute. Challenging violations of the CBA and other rights defined in a statute. Leadership Promote maximum involvement by members in union activities, especially within the collective bargaining process.  Delegate duties to Stewards (and to panel reps where relevant) Call and chair regular Steward meetings to share information, identify best practices, and review grievances and other workplace issues.  Chair other meetings when necessary, such as membership or union management committee meetings. Recruitment: Actively recruit new Stewards with the goal of achieving a representative Steward body in ATU.

Mentoring & Training: Ensure you are familiar with your CBA, related legislation, workplace policies and procedures, ATU policies, the Steward Manual, and union resource people.  Complete training as set out in ATU policy.  Orient new Stewards, and support them to meet the expectations set out in the Steward job description.

Mentoring Arrangements for New Stewards: Encourage Stewards to take appropriate training, such as conflict resolution training.  Update Stewards about education opportunities.  Encourage Stewards to set appropriate limits to prevent stress and burn-out.

Ensure that Stewards are registered with ATU membership records after each election. Ensure distribution and posting of union information within your zone.
