We have several vacancies in the steward ranks due to the recent retirement wave. We are looking for the next generation of union stewards to step forward to protect and serve our fellow members. The time to apply is now and we welcome your application. If you think one of your union brothers/sisters may make a great steward, please tell them and encourage them to apply.
Applications are welcome from any agency. Our greatest current needs are it at DRS, DAS, DESPP, DMV, OPM, and DEEP, (both Hartford and PURA in New Britain).
Union stewards advocate for their colleagues in the workplace, making sure all employees fairly and fully benefit from our rights under our A&R contract. Stewards also educate fellow members about important notices and contract updates, while making sure managers are educated about employee rights. Stewards play a key role in signing up new members and in organizing members into a vocal, active union that can advocate for necessary change and improvements to the state workplace.
Applicants for a union steward position should send: 1) a cover letter; (2) a résumé; and (3) the names and phone numbers of two A&R members in the applicant’s agency who will serve as character references. Please send your application either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail, attention Patrick Lamb, Chief Steward at A&R, 805 Brook Street, Rocky Hill, CT 06067.
