Steward  
Our union is strongest when our members come together, ready to fight for what’s right. Every day, CSEA stewards make this happen at worksites throughout the state. In this two-part workshop, you will learn more about our union and how stewards build power by organizing, educating, and communicating with coworkers. 

This workshop is for All CSEA Members who want to build a stronger union.
