Sign Your Union Card!

Become a member in good standing simply by signing your blue union card every academic year. You must sign your union card in order to be eligible for union benefits, vote, etc. The blue union cards are available in the office.

It's Your Union...Get Involved!

Become a steward and/or join a committee!


Become a Departmental Steward

Each department is entitled to one union steward for every 25 members. Stewards play a crucial role in helping the members of their department to resolve workplace issues. They are the first line of communication between members and the Local and help to uphold and protect the terms of our Collective Agreement.

All members are eligible to serve as a steward and each department employs different methods to appoint or elect members as stewards. You do not need to have any prior union experience to get involved; the Local will be offering training to all stewards to ensure they have the knowledge and skills needed to fulfill this very important role!


Steward nomination forms can be downloaded here.

To help prepare you to effectively serve as a steward in your department this year, the Local is offering a STEWARD TRAINING SESSION on Tuesday, October 11, 2016 in room TH 3154 (Thames Hall) at 12:30pm OR October 13, 2016 in room SH 2355 (Somerville House) at 4:30pm.

Some of the topics that will be discussed in the training sessions include: 

  • The roles and responsibilities of Stewards 
  • Tips on how to serve as an effective Steward 
  • Common situations you may encounter as a Steward and how to deal with them  

The Local strongly encourages you to attend ONE training session. However, if you are unable to attend please notify your Chief Steward.

  • Chief Steward Arts & Humanities: James Steinhoff
  • Chief Steward Social Sciences: Heather Peacock
  • Chief Steward Bio Sciences: Junaedur Rahman
  • Chief Steward Physical Sciences: Asif Zobaer
