Local 277 Holds Annual Steward Training.
Local 277 held its annual steward training summit in Fort Worth on Thursday, March 31, 2016. Training was led by Diane Thomas-Holladay from the Labor Education Progra at the University of Arkansas - Little Rock. Stewards were educated on valuable topics such as their roles in the work place, Weingarten rights, what constitutes a grievance, grievance investigation, dealing with discipline and discharge, and so much more. In addition to Ms. Thomas-Holladay’s lecture, Local 277 Legal Counsel G. William Baab gave a brief review of the arbitration process and the importance of strong steward representation. The training was well received by all and a great chance for Local 277 stewards all across the United States to meet and talk shop.
