THE STEWARD’S JOB
George Embleton, Labor Educator and Guild Past President
Nearly 15 million Americans workers are in a union, and few will ever meet or work with their union’s topmost leaders. But nearly all know a union steward or representative who is a worker just like they are. We’ll focus on the role stewards play in leading, representing and organizing co-workers. We will explore worker rights, and steward rights and the challenges all of us in the Labor movement are facing, as well strategies for the future. Serious stuff? Yes, but we will have fun!
PERSUASIVE PUBLIC SPEAKING
Carol Gustavson, Executive Director – Benefits, Archdiocese of Boston; and Arbitrator Richard Reilly
Political candidates hone and practice stump speeches to paint a vivid picture that wins support. Union leaders or community activists must also persuade and communicate effectively with members, managers and groups in all kinds of situations. Whether discussing the “Friedrichs” case, explaining union positions or benefits, practice and polish your speaking skills in a friendly, supportive environment with guidance and feedback from the instructors.
