Union Stewards. The Hospital agrees to recognize union stewards to be elected or appointed from amongst employees in the bargaining unit for the purpose of handling grievances as provided under this Collective Agreement. Union stewards have their regular duties and responsibilities to perform for the Hospital and shall not leave their regular duties without first obtaining permission from their immediate supervisor. Such permission shall not be unreasonably withheld. If, in the performance of his grievance duties, a union steward is required to enter an area within the Hospital in which he is not ordinarily employed, he shall report his presence to the supervisor in the area immediately upon entering it. When resuming his regular duties and responsibilities, such steward shall again report to his immediate supervisor. A union steward shall suffer no loss of earnings for time spent in performing the above duties during his regular scheduled working hours. The number of stewards, the areas which they represent, are to be determined locally and will be set out in the Local Provisions Appendix.
Union Stewards. 6.1 The Accredited Union Representatives shall inform the appropriate EPSCA Representative and the Employer of the steward, in writing, of the names of all stewards, one of whom shall be designated Chief Steward, as they are appointed and when they cease to act as stewards, except as noted below. Any steward, other than a Chief Steward, shall exercise his duties only in respect to employees of his Employer. A Chief Steward, in order to carry out his duties in respect to employees of other than his Employer, shall first involve the EPSCA Representative. Any steward shall obtain permission from his immediate supervisor before leaving his work area for union business. Such permission shall not be unreasonably denied. Except at Bruce Nuclear Power Development (BNPD): Only in situations where an accredited Union Representative is unable to attend pre-job and/or mark-up meetings, may the Chief Steward be designated and attend, as part of the Chief Steward's duties, on behalf of the accredited union representative. In cases where the Chief Steward is an employee of OPG, Bruce Power L.P. or Hydro One, he shall not be considered the Steward for the purposes of owner- only contracts. The Union shall have the right to appoint a Steward on such contracts who shall be considered the Steward with respect to employees of employers on such contracts. All Operating Engineers shall report to the Chief Steward prior to commencing work for the purpose of verifying membership and clearance to the appropriate project and/or contractor. Notwithstanding the above, upon the Chief Steward’s request, Employers on owner-only contracts will in a timely manner provide the Chief Steward with information/documentation acceptable to him to verify union status/ membership of employees.
Union Stewards. The Employer agrees to recognize all elected Union stewards for each site location. The steward may receive complaints and is expected to represent the concerns and issues of the bargaining unit. However, only one of the stewards and/or the Chief Steward or Worksite Organizer may present the issues/grievances to management and see that the terms and conditions of the Agreement are observed, provided that such activity does not unduly interfere with the work assignment of the steward(s) or other employees. Community Solutions will provide paid time to the Union stewards for the purpose of conducting their duties (excluding Union meetings), when such duties are performed within the steward’s regular work schedule. It is specifically understood by this provision that stewards will not be required to “check out” or “sign in” when conducting their duties as stewards. The Union will notify the Employer, in writing, of the names of all duly authorized stewards and Worksite Organizers within thirty (30) days of execution of this Agreement or assignment/appointment changes are made.
Union Stewards. (a) The Union may elect or designate Union Stewards by classification within each department (who shall be recognized by the Employer). The Union Steward is recognized as an authorized representative of the Union for settling grievances and disputes. Representatives of the Employer with authority to settle such matters will meet with the Union Steward and work for the resolution of such matters. One (1) Union Steward who has participated in the informal procedure shall with prior approval attend grievance meetings scheduled by the Employer without loss of wages or benefits. If the Union expressly requests that a Steward attend a meeting the Employer will not unreasonably deny such a request. However, an employee acting as Steward shall not be compensated at more than their straight-time rate of pay while performing the duties of a Steward and shall not be compensated if performing the duties of a Steward on their scheduled day off.
Union Stewards. (a) The Employer recognizes the right of the Union to conduct an election or select from among the employees who are members of the Union, a Chief Steward/Steward(s) to handle such Union business at the Company where he/she is employed, as may from time to time be delegated to him/her by the Union. The name of such Chief Steward/Steward(s) shall be reported to the Employer. The Union shall designate the areas for which the Chief Steward/Steward(s) is responsible. Union Chief Steward/Steward(s) employed by the Employer shall be required to fulfill their obligations to the Employer and the Employer’s guests and to perform their job duties as any other employee covered by the Agreement. Shop Stewards shall not interrupt employees while working.
Union Stewards. The Union may designate one (1) employee from the ranks of the sworn police officer unit as a Steward (and an equal number of alternates who shall act only in the absence of their respective Steward) to represent the individual employees who are covered by this Agreement on individual grievances. The Union will submit a list of Job Stewards (permanent and alternate) to the University within thirty (30) days after the ratification of this contract, and thereafter, will notify the University in writing to any additions or deletions to the Job Stewards list. The Steward or alternate will be a working employee, who shall be permitted a reasonable amount of time (but not to exceed in total two (2) hours per week) during regular working hours to investigate and present the grievances of such employees as he/she has been designated to represent. Prior to leaving the work area to investigate or present a grievance, the Steward must notify and receive permission from their supervisor. Such permission shall not be unreasonably withheld, but it shall not be granted at times which interfere with the efficient operation of the University. The University shall not discriminate against any Steward or alternate for his/her conduct in performing lawful Union duties. During such performance of Union-related business, a Steward or alternate shall receive his regular compensation from the University.
Union Stewards a. The Union shall notify the SOCP Human Resources Manager or designee of the selection of Stewards and their alternates. The Union shall be allowed one (1) Steward and alternate per work site. Eliot (and other multiple house sites as they are developed) shall be allowed two (2) stewards and their alternates. Staff shall utilize the assistance of an in-house Steward where appropriate. When this is not appropriate a Steward from a nearby house may be used by the employee.
