The role of a Union Steward is always evolving, and that is why they are considered the cornerstone of Local 1473.
Make sure you know who your Union Steward is. Local 1473 has posted in each work location who the Steward(s) is for your workplace. If you do not know who your Union Steward is please call Local 1473.
Union Stewards are a valuable resource for Local 1473 members.
