    To All,

    What type of Shop Steward orientation and training does your Local Union provide to new Shop Stewards?

    Shop Stewards please share the training that you were given.

    PT Stewie,

    How long have you been a Shop Steward?

    Did you receive this training as orientation when you became a Shop Steward?

    When during your tenure as a Shop Steward did you receive this training?

    Did this training cover the complete job responsibilities of a Shop Steward, with training as to how to carry these responsibilities out?

    I recieved training when I first brcame a steward, and it covered pretty much how to conduct youself professionaly (most aspects) . I have gone back twice for a refresher about every two years . I have been a steward for 7 years.I don't like to miss any additional training. Also I have a good working relationship with my BA and always can rely on the local for any guidance I may need. Being prepared and knowledgeable is they key.

    our local has yearly steward seminars, over the years they've covered changes in DOT rules to effective ways of mediating issues that come up at work.
