Stewards networkWelcome to the Stewards Network at psacbc.com

This is a collection of all the Steward-related information and posts on the website - click below for more files and topics.

The Steward is the visible presence of the union in the workplace as the union officer who works with and interacts with the members at the workplace and represents them in a specific work area.

The Steward enforces the collective agreement and protects the rights members have acquired through negotiations and other union actions. Stewards are elected or appointed within the Local. The Steward is a key person in the union and helps ensure PSAC Locals are strong, representative and successful in protecting membership rights.

For more information about the Steward's Network, contact Dave Jackson in the Victora Regional Office at (250) 953-1050 or 1 (866) 953-1050.
