Integrated Camera Unit – Ministry of Public Safety & Solicitor General - Call for BCGEU Stewards - BC General Employees' Union (BCGEU)

Your union, the BC General Employees' Union (BCGEU), is opening nominations for one union steward position at your worksite. Nominations close on January 29, 2024.

  • Stewards are the eyes and ears of the union at the worksite and have an important role within the union. Stewards are involved in assisting union members with:
  • Helping co-workers interpret and understand their collective agreement;
  • Supporting co-workers in meetings with management.
  • Assisting with any grievances or complaints and helping to find solutions;
  • Listening to co-workers about their issues.
  • Orienting new employees to the union and their rights under the collective agreement;
  • Acting as a liaison between the worksite, the union local and the BCGEU's area offices.
  • Communicating about broader local issues and training opportunities within the union.
  • Making sure all co-workers are in the loop by updating the union bulletin board.
  • Referring members to committees on specific issues, such as the Joint Labour Management and Occupational Health and Safety Committees.

You do not have to have prior experience or knowledge to become a steward. We need members who are motivated to make a difference in the workplace and are willing to learn about your workplace rights. The BCGEU provides free training, and all stewards are mentored by a BCGEU staff representative. Steward rights are enshrined in the collective agreement. Feel free to visit the union's website for more information.

If you are interested in becoming a steward at your worksite, you must be formally nominated by a fellow BCGEU member. Please fill out the attached nomination form and return it to the BCGEU Lower Mainland Area Office by 4:30 pm on Monday, January 29, 2024:
