In the Teamsters Union, a steward or committee member is someone who addresses member needs, wants, interests, and concerns on a daily basis. With the assistance of Local 638’s business agents, stewards and committee members put forth extra effort to make sure all members have a voice and an advocate on the job.
Despite the extra time and the hard work, being a steward can bring great satisfaction – the satisfaction that comes with knowing you have helped someone and that you have made a difference in the lives of working men and women. Stewards are communicators, listeners, problem solvers, leaders, and advisors that you can count on to assist you.
To find your steward, check your job site bulletin board or contact 612-379-1533.
