This Week's Labor Video

Have Unions Outlived Their Usefulness?

Here’s an excellent video reminder from our Canadian brothers and sisters that there’s nothing new, and nothing true, about the familiar line, “Unions aren’t needed anymore.”

This Week's Member Tip

What is a Union Steward?

The heart and soul of any union is its members, and they are pulled together by a network of first-line union representatives, 2017.07.24 membertip stewardoften called stewards.  Your union may use a different title for this position, such as department rep or representative spokesperson, but the functions will be the same.  Stewards are the “eyes and ears” of the union, keeping track for the union of what’s happening on a day-to-day basis.  An effective steward functions as a two-way pipeline:  passing information along to higher-ups in the union, so that they can formulate plans to respond to employer actions, and making sure that the union members in their areas are kept informed about what’s going on within the union.
