SLS - What stewards need to know about bargaining

SLS - Popular economics for stewards
Mar 26, 2019 (1:00pm-4:00pm) (11 spaces available)
We keep hearing that the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. How do these trends impact our lives as workers and union members? What is needed from us as stewards in these times of growing economic inequality?
SLS - Growing our mobilizing power
Mar 27, 2019 (9:00am-12:00pm) (11 spaces available)
Stewards can play a key role when the union needs to mobilize our members – whether it’s to support the bargaining committee, or stop the employer’s attempt to contract out our work. Learn basic mobilization theory and explore how stewards can tackle workplace problems in ways that engage more members and build the union’s power.
