What Is A Union Steward?


A union steward is a highly regarded VSEA member-leader within a worksite who advocates for other members. They play a vital role in resolving workplace issues, addressing members’ concerns, strengthening the union, safeguarding the contract, and constantly enhancing their stewardship abilities.

The VSEA Steward Program offers a comprehensive set of training sessions specifically designed to address the unique challenges encountered by members and state employees. The role of a steward is pivotal within a labor union, carrying significant importance. It is imperative for stewards to partake in ongoing training, fostering relationships, and collaborating with fellow stewards, member-leaders, and VSEA staff. By working together, we contribute to the growth of a more robust VSEA and effectively advocate for the dedicated workers who deliver essential state services for the betterment of the public.
