Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich on taking a leadership role in the workplace and the importance of unions:
By law, Union members are entitled to have a union representative present in disciplinary and/or investigatory interviews. The Weingarten Fact sheet outlines these rights, and what you are able to do as a steward when called upon to be a representative for your fellow union members.
Many new members may have never been in a union before, or might not even know what a union is. This quick guide will give you some pointers on welcoming new members to Teamsters 856 and what they should know about their new union.
This booklet gives a brief overview of the Teamsters Union and contains important information for all members on Teamster purpose, history, structure, rights and our future.
“Teamster Stewards Make a Difference” , published by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters is the comprehensive guide for Teamster Shop Stewards. The manual contains important information on your rights as a shop steward, tips on getting started, and how to get involved and stay involved in your union.
“The Grievance Procedure, Making it Work for Us” , published by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, gives an in-depth look at the grievance procedure and how it can be used effectively to protect the rights of union members.
