UAW 2322 Member – Activist – Steward Training Report Back

Yesterday’s Local 2322 Member – Activist – Steward (MAS) Training was a success.  18 UAW 2322 members, including 6 GEO members, gathered to discuss their goals as members and stewards, and to learn the basics of the steward’s role, including:

  • Weingarten rights and investigatory meetings
  • An overview of the Family and Medical Leave Act
  • The Duty of Fair Representation
  • Investigating, filing, and documenting grievances
  • Working with Local staff and leadership to improve communications between stewards and staff, members and stewards, and between members.

There will be additional MAS Trainings at the UMass campus next month.  We will be posting the times and locations as soon as they are settled upon, but please feel free to call the GEO office at 413-545-0705 to let them know if you are interested!

UAW 2322 Skating Party

UAW 2322’s February 6, 2011 Skating Party was a resounding success!  Bringing together members from many of the shops in UAW Local 2322, including GEO, the UMass RA Union, ServiceNet, Providence Hospital, and others, we had two hours of family fun and skating.  This yearly social event continues to be one of the Local’s best attended and most popular events.
