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.
