New Class of Stewards Selected


Our Chief Stewards Committee has selected the newest class of 60 participants in our Leadership Apprentice Program for Stewards (LAPS), and they will begin their six-month training in January. Another 60 new stewards will graduate this month, bringing the program’s total to more than 400 new stewards in the 2+ years the LAPS program has been running. 

LAPS training includes a combination of online, classroom and in-the-field experience. Skilled mentors from our organizing and representational staff offer guidance along the way. 

Three more LAPS groups are scheduled to begin in 2019 – for more information and to apply, visit
