Hello, I'm new to the browncafe. I just had a question on shop stewards. I apologize in advance if this question has been asked before. The union rep that is supposed to be protecting (or should I say be on our/union employee side of the ball). Is not on our side at all. I've asked him serveral times about some problems I've been having about my work load. He says I have to listen to management and he can't do a damn thing about it. So I guess what I'm trying to say is, if the union rep/steward guy doesn't help us out. What the heck is he doing in our building? I thought he got paid to help us out. At least from what I've been told by others, he's supposed to make sure everyone is doing the same amount of work. Be safe about it, and be treated equally. Or am I missing a piece somewhere? As far as I'm aware he's supposed to be on our side, but from the looks of it. He's just kissing/sucking up to management. Which is probably illegal. I should probably figure out how to get a new guy/girl who actually knows what the hell is going on and stand up for us.
