Local 1000 stewards are at the core of our collective power. They are the workplace advocates for our union, educating and advocating for our members. Stewards are the crucial connection between the workplace and the union, harnessing the power of our members at the workplace and amplifying their voices.
The Leadership Apprentice Program for Stewards (LAPS) fosters leaders in the workplace who advance the core mission of Local 1000.
Stewards are the building blocks of the collective power of our union. They connect members to their union and to one another, they amplify member voices in the workplace and in the community, and they harness the energies and talents of Local 1000 members to build power across the state. By giving our stewards new tools and training to be effective leaders, we are truly investing in the grass-roots strength of our union.
