Steward Nominations for Vancity – Branch 10 - BCGEU

As you may know, Branch 10 steward Rose Archie has taken a temporary contract in another department. We are very sorry to see her go, even if only temporarily, and wish her all the best in her new opportunity. 

In the meantime, we will need a new alternate steward at Branch 10, so we will be accepting nominations for the position. Nominations are now open for 1 (one) alternate steward position at your worksite and will close on Tuesday, January 29, 2019.

Stewards are the primary representatives of members and have an important role within the Union.

Some of the roles of a steward are:


  • Helping co-workers interpret and understand their collective agreement.
  • Supporting co-workers in meetings with management.
  • Listening to co-workers about their issues.
  • 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.
