Trainings

CORE STEWARD TRAINING PART 1 (10AM TO 4PM):

Participants will become familiar with the values and history of SEIU-UHW West and the role, legal rights and responsibilities of stewards. We will also discuss recognizing what is a grievance and what is not and how to investigate a grievance. Participants will also learn skills to effectively communicate with members and management around grievance issues.

CORE STEWARD TRAINING PART 2 (10AM TO 4PM):

Participants will learn how to write a grievance and practice basic skills in understanding a contract. We will discuss a steward’s right to information, how to be an effective steward, what to do when a member contacts you and a complete overview of the grievance process.

NOTE: Just as a reminder, these Steward Trainings are composed of 7 hours each.  Therefore, members can only take ONE training class per day.  Once a member has completed Steward Training Part 1, then they can take Steward Training Part 2 on the next available date.

MEMBER APPEAL PANEL TRAINING (9AM TO 5PM):

As part of Representational Excellence, if it is recommended that a case should not go to arbitration, the grievant will get a chance to appeal that decision in front of a member panel who makes the final decision if the case should be taken to arbitration or not. If you would like to be a part of that member-panel, you need to attend this training! In this training you will hear first-hand from our Legal Counsel and an Arbitrator how they decide on cases. Learn how to prepare arbitration cases and how to determine if cases are meritorious. If you have participated in this training previously and have not had an opportunity to serve as a panelist, understand that a priority will be given to stewards who have not had the training or who have participated.
