Thank you for being so motivated in setting up your Union with the Canadian Union of Public Employees. As we move forward in building your Union, it is important that an *interim* CUPE Stewards Committee be established at each base. This interim Stewards Committee will ensure that you and your colleagues are appropriately empowered and represented at any meetings with the Employer.
You are encouraged to contact the CUPE Servicing Representative serving your base to volunteer for the role of interim Steward. You will be able to do this by sending an email to the CUPE Servicing Representative serving your base:
Please ensure the following information is included:
- Your full name
- The base you operate from
- Your personal email address and telephone number
Volunteers will have until September 14, 2018 to indicate their interest.
Once each base has an interim Stewards Committee, CUPE Servicing Representatives will coordinate and schedule training sessions for the interimStewards. In the meantime, please take a look at the following online resource which will give you a flavour of the work involved in being a Union Steward: https://cupe.ca/resources-
We look forward to meeting you soon.
Sanford, Aneen, Faiz
