LAPS training program for Job Stewards accepting applications
SEIU Local 1000 Job Stewards are on the front lines for our Union; they organize their fellow members and are our members’ first line of defense when their contract rights are violated. If you’d like to join the ranks of job stewards, please fill out an application for the upcoming Leadership Apprentice Program for Stewards (LAPS) training.
Training will begin on October 14, 2023, and we invite you to apply to become a Job Steward.
If you are interested in becoming a Job Steward*, please submit your application packet to email@example.com by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, September 18, 2023.
The following steps are required for admission to the program:
Complete the Job Steward
Pay careful attention to the questions that ask for your unique perspective, especially regarding the Purpose Statement. SEIU Local 1000 leaders are known for their diverse talents and interests. Use this application to describe who you are, your values and strengths, and what you will bring to the Local. Please give thought to the values expressed in the Purpose Statement and share how they relate to your own values, goals, and passions. The Purpose Statement can be found on our website.
Obtain TWO (2) letters of
recommendation, written by your coworkers in the
office/unit/floor/etc. that you would represent if you became a
Job Steward. The letters should outline why these individuals
believe you would be successful as a Job Steward. Outside
recommendations from family members, supervisors, and state
workers not represented by SEIU Local 1000 are not acceptable.
Template letters are also not acceptable.
- Gather TWENTY-FIVE (25) signatures from your coworkers who support you becoming a Job Steward. Use the petition form found here.
It is helpful (though not necessary) to have a current Job Steward, officer, member leader, or union staff member submit a recommendation on your behalf.
