Members Update Stewards Drive

We are stronger together.jpg

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

We want YOU, as Stewards!

Our Members are the backbone of our Union. I am proud to say that our members are more engaged now than they have been in a long time. Because of your input, we have added benefits. Because you call us first to alert us to workplace issues, we have fixed them fast.

Local 71 is actively recruiting new shop stewards. Sports fans know that any winning team is only as good as their bench. We are stronger together when our members are involved, and I am committed to investing in your success. Becoming a Steward is a great way to get training, and our Stewards do not stand alone, we give them support.

This year, our biennial in-person Stewards Training, usually scheduled in June, was cancelled due to COVID. We are actively working on training modules to be delivered in segments individually to onboard new stewards and further support those who are already serving.

Last October we invested in member development by sending one of our stewards and one potential steward to the Trades Women Build Nations conference to represent Local 71 and LIUNA. Your Sisters returned energized and ready to lead.

Becoming a Local 71 Steward opens doors. It is a great way to learn about your union and meet your Brothers and Sisters. Our Stewards are recognized and respected. Our reputation as a union is strong right now. Employers and communities are taking notice. We have the strength to support our members. We will be even stronger knowing we have prepared our next wave of leadership to lift our members up.

I am a member who started on the frontlines. I have represented you as a foreman, a steward, a business rep, and now business manager. That early training is what prepared me, and you deserve the same opportunities. Follow this link for more information about LIUNA Stewards and their responsibilities:, then call us.

United and working together, we are unstoppable.
If you have questions, please do not hesitate to call us, we are here to serve you.

In your service,

Jordan A. Adams
