Updated On: Jan 03, 2017
On Sunday December 4th of 2016, Local 814 held the first of several planned trainings for the union's shop stewards. The event was well attended by shoppies from Moving and Storage as well Sotheby's Auction House.
President Jason Ide lead a detailed and interactive workshop on how to conduct to a proper investigation if a co-worker is disciplined by managment. Business Agent Walter Taylor gave advice on dealing with supervisors and dispatchers and lastly Organizer Julian Tysh gave a brief presentation on the IDS -- Industry Dispatch System.
Thank you to all who came out. The steward is the union's first line of defense on the job so it is important that we all continue to better educate ourselves. The executive board will be scheduling a make-up training for all stewards who were unable to attend as well as a follow up trainings for those that completed this first class.
