Steward Intermediate

Steward Intermediate is designed to strengthen the ability of BCNU stewards to address issues in their workplaces and support BCNU members. This blended online course reinforces key issues in labour relations already covered in Steward Essentials, including progressive discipline, investigations, reading and interpreting collective agreements, and the grievance process. It covers additional principles by looking further into the need for grievance file management and the arbitration processes while introducing labour relations tenets. Stewards will also participate in practice sessions and be encouraged to integrate BCNU member advocacy services into their role, providing awareness in areas such as OHS, the LEAP program, the Professional Responsibility process and Human Rights and Equity advocacy.

This is a blended learning course. It begins with foundational online learner prep two weeks prior to the first of two live (virtual) sessions. Over the course of two days (one week apart), the virtual sessions will review 'just in time' online resources available to support stewards in fulfilling their role.
