This year over 150 stewards, union leaders, guests, and staff gathered at Tekoa Country Club to learn more from each other about how to better represent their fellow workers.  President Tyrone Housey and Secretary-Treasurer Dean Ethier began the day by addressing stewards as new leaders for UFCW Local 1459. Attorney David Rome provided an overview of the Janus decision and its impact the labor movement. A thorough and engaging presentation about grievance process was provided by retired IBEW staffer and labor educator Ed Collins. And the day ended with breakouts by sector so stewards from different bargaining units and locations could talk and learn from each other. Thank you to everyone who made this fantastic event possible.
