Become a GAU Steward!
Who is a steward?
A steward serves as our point person in their department. For example, if someone in your department wants to know something concerning GAU (or anything work-related) they know they can go to you as a first step. Of course, you are not expected to answer all their questions – just pass them on to the chief steward or another GAU officer.
What else does a steward do?
We’ll also relay information about what we’re doing (campaigns, bargaining, social events, etc.) to you to help spread the word. If you notice a contract-related issue in your department, you can shoot it up to us – this is often how we find out about potential problems and grievances!
The stewards’ council
The stewards’ council itself is an important part of the union. It helps coordinate our efforts throughout campus and it serves as a good place for us to bounce ideas around about the direction of the union.
