Member Activist Summit

In late September, 20 trainees in Local 21’s Steward Training Program attended the Member Activist (MA) Summit at the Local 21 office in Oakland. MAs got a chance to meet fellow soon-to-be graduates from the first level of the program from across jurisdictions to exchange ideas and experiences as MAs-in-training.

Participants of the summit discussed what it means to be a Member Activist at the workplace. The general consensus was that it means putting a face to the Union, listening to their coworkers and assessing workplace issues that come up in terms of what the Union can do for fellow L21 members.
