Teamsters Local 743 conducts Healthcare Stewards Training on Saturday February 17, 2017.
Over 60 local 743 stewards attended the Healthcare Stewards Training on Saturday February 17, 2017 at Local 743.
Commissioners Tom Jeffery and Emil Totonchi from the FMCS were the instructors. Both private and public sector healthcare stewards learned, grievance handling, problem solving skills, conflict resolution as well as several other skills.
Newly elected stewards gained valuable knowledge about their role as a union steward. Senior stewards refreshed their skills as well as learning new ones.
Education and trainings are a top priority at Teamsters local 743. Union stewards play a very important role in the success of Local 743. They are the first line of contact for members when they are faced with issues or concerns.
As a reminder, union stewards are required to attend a minimum of two (2) training per year.
