Steward Education

BCNU stewards are leaders who work hard to protect the language of the collective agreement, ensuring that all members' rights are respected as they deliver safe patience care. The steward education program is open to all members of BCNU who are currently registered as stewards at their worksite. 

The learning outcomes for all courses offered exclusively to stewards are comprehensive, applicable and rooted in a deeper knowledge of labour relations. Whether it's being able to recall specific articles that relate to a member's circumstances or having the confidence to express concerns at union/management meetings, BCNU is committed to supporting stewards every step of the way.


Skill Labs

​Skill Labs are a series of new online sessions designed for stewards to review and practise their skills over Zoom.  Each session will include a brief presentation on a topic. Session topics include: Note Taking, How to Read and Interpret a Collective Agreement, Employer Investigations, Union Management Meeting, How to Host a Zoom Meeting and How to Produce a Zoom meeting. 

Please note:  Skill Lab sessions are complimentary and can be taken multiple times. These sessions are not salary reimbursed.
