On Friday, March 26, Teamsters Local 623 held our 2021 Steward Seminar. Shop stewards from every employer, workplace, center and shift attended.
New stewards learned best practices from seasoned veterans. We learned about how the Teamsters plan to meet the Amazon threat from the IBT strategic campaigns department. President Clarence Bagby busted three big myth's about the UPS contract. And stewards were able to take part in mock panel cases, where they had to play the parts of the company, the union, and the grievant.
Steward trainings like will help make our "First Line of Defense" more unified, better organized, and stronger.
