Steward Training

In the midst of the crisis and with all of the challenges that we are facing in the courts, the Local has received a healthy number of people coming forward offering to serve as stewards. It seems that the more difficult the situations arising from the pandemic, the more the number of people coming forward to lend a hand in our effort to represent and protect our members in these trying times. 

As with all new stewards, CWA requires that they first go through a “basic training” through the district office, before actually being sworn in to serve and act as representatives of the Union, and more specifically, the Local. Of course, any steward who has already gone through the course may attend as a refresher, or to share their experience with others in an informal discussion toward the end. 

All new stewards MUST complete the course before representing members, filing grievances on their own, or discussing policies with administration. 

The date is set: 

November 14th, 2020.  

The time:

The time frame set presently is 8:00am to 4:00pm, with a 30 minute lunch break and other pauses. If the attendees finish the material before the stop time, then it will end earlier.

The place: 

Since COVID is still a thing, we will be sending everyone a Zoom link to attend the event.

This event is open to all members. We are looking forward to seeing the newly board-approved provisional stewards listed below:

Sergio Molina
Christina Guerrero
David Gala
Lucinda Aragón
Maya Fonseca
Carmen Marroquín
Vanessa Bonilla

This course is a requisite for continuing on as an official steward. Please send an email to [email protected] with “Nov 14 Steward Training” in the Subject line indicating you’ll be attending. It’s important to have a head count at least a week ahead of time to be able to send the manuals and other materials that will be important for the course.

If you have any questions, please contact [email protected] or call the local at 562 944 2341. 

We look seeing you there!

In solidarity,

Michael Ferreira
