Workplace Stewards and Department Representative

A workplace steward is elected by the members in their workplace.   If this steward is the 
only steward in the department then they automatically become the Department Rep.  
If there is more than one steward in a department then the Department Rep is agreed or 
elected.  As a Department Rep they have the right to attend and vote at Branch Executive
Meetings.  The following is a list of the current Workplace Stewards and Department Reps:

Workplace Contacts

In workplaces where there is no Steward or Health & Safety Rep the Branch have 
introduced a Contacts Network.  This network consists of members who are willing to act a 
contact to distribute any information/ literature.  This is all that we ask however if they wish 
to do more, i.e. informing the Branch of new starts within the workplace, then we are 
extremely grateful. If you are interested please get in touch!
