Annual Steward’s Seminar

Each year, our stewards gather for our Local 1459 “Steward’s Seminar” to learn skills and ideas that will help them become effective stewards. It’s an all-day event chock full of speakers and educational sessions designed to give stewards an opportunity to get a better understanding of contract language and the rights it provides.

  • Learn strategies for effective contract enforcement and for dealing with coworkers who are having problems
  • Hear from key guest speakers
  • Listen to representatives from the UFCW International talk about issues facing workers at the national level
  • Talk with our union representatives about workplace issues and get feedback on problems
  • Get advice from other stewards and union leadership
  • Receive recognition for their outstanding efforts and contributions to Local 1459 members

All UFCW Local 1459 steward’s are eligible to attend. Many stewards are eligible to receive a paid day off from work to attend the seminar. Please check with your union representative to determine if your contract contains this provision.
