UE Steward's Kit
What Stewards Need to Know

stwdkit.gif (23060 bytes)

Written especially for UE Stewards and packed full of information (98 pages worth)! This is a complete handbook and reference manual covering just about everything a steward needs to know.

Tools, Rights & Rules  - A chapter covering all the "tools" a steward needs on the job, from legal rights and safeguards to protections for the members.

Fighting Grievances - UE's 60-plus years of dedication to defending members' rights on the job is captured in a step-by-step guide on fighting and winning grievances.

Organizing to Win! Our rank-and-file union depends on members who are united and ready to stand up to injustice and unfair treatment by the boss. Here's how to keep your workplace organized and in top shape.

Reference - Two special sections provide even more information. First, there's "Law's that Help" and second, a special "Steward's Dictionary."

Easy to Use! With a complete table of contents, a six-page index and handy "thumb tabs," finding information as easy as possible.

A Companion Pocket Guide

A guide to use on the job. Fits in a pocket and covers the information you need to know on the spot. And, one glance at the bottom of each page will tell you where to look in the Handbook for more information! Completely cross-referenced, both books were designed to be used together.
