On November 9th, we were excited to be able to welcome our Steward’s, in person, to our annual Steward’s Seminar which was held at Oak Ridge Country Club. The day began with our Region 1 Director, Fallon Ager-Norman, addressing the group. Then we heard from representatives from the National Pension Fund. It was a day of learning from important speakers, such as Attorney Terry Coles who spoke about grievances and answered many questions. Attorneys Charlie Casartello & Mike Cardaropoli spoke about worker’s compensation. Lydia Wood from the Western MA Area Labor Federation spoke and representatives from the Federal Mediation & Conciliation Service presented as well. Barbara Fedumenti, from the UFCW New England Health Fund, had an informational table set-up to answer any questions. The Business Representatives presented plaques to their Steward of the Year – Congratulations to all of the recipients! The day ended with breakout groups where people were able to meet and learn from each other.
