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.


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.


At Core Steward Training you will learn how to get onto the SEIU-UHW E-Learning system (UHW Leadership Training Center) to continue your Core Steward Training of all the topics presented in Core Steward Training Part One and Two.
