Anyone else's union steward and on route sup buddies?

Just curious if any body has a steward that hangs out with the boss occasionally outside of work. Or if they both meet in the sups office to discuss discipline before talking with the manager. OOOOOOR if they both give part of the pcm with both speaking about how we need to be below scratch and watch out back firsts and not to bitch about 9.5 yada yada. Anyone else or just us?

Well thanks for marking this old, good to see the issue is still around.

But for those of you that this is an old topic and have something to add, like if you tried to get it fixed and the result please share!

It's good to have a respectful working relationship with the management team, but I draw the line with personal interaction. Stewards job in my opinion is to enforce the contract and protect all employees jobs, wages and working conditions, not to aid in the companies agenda.

The numbers thing is worth mentioning to your local leadership at a meeting. Have the balls to stand up there and say you’re sick of hearing union stewards talk about production numbers. That’s giving bad advice.

but being buddy buddy, I could care less about. Stewards who can maintain a good relationship with management have their role to play.

That's not allowed. It's in the contract.

Are you stewards elected?
