Outstanding Stewardship Award Launched

The Local is pleased to announce a new recognition award specifically for Shop Stewards.

The Outstanding Stewardship Award will be presented annually to a Local 2228 shop steward who has made significant contributions to the Local and its members. As part of the Local's recognition program, the exemplary leadership and commitment demonstrated in the role of Shop Steward will be awarded.

Nominations may be made by a member or group of members. Completed nomination forms should be sent to the Business Office by email or by regular mail . The deadline for submitting a nomination is August 31st.

The award winner will have demonstrated leadership during difficult times, increased solidarity in the workplace, or earned significant respect from members by providing support.  Of course, they will have also been a strong advocate for their members’ rights and concerns.  A complete description of the selection criteria can be downloaded here .

A selection committee consisting of the Business Manager, the President, the Chair of the Communication and Recognition Committee, and an IBEW International Representative will evaluate the nominations in the fall of each year.
If you believe your steward has done outstanding work, take the time to recognize their efforts by nominating them for the Outstanding Stewardship Award.

In solidarity,

Kim Mikkelsen
Chair, Communication and Recognition Committee
