NASA Union Stewards

NASA is always looking for more Union Stewards—members who have a passion for ensuring that they and their co-workers are treated fairly at work. If that sounds like you, then you could be a NASA steward!

Stewards are members who:

  • establish NASA's presence in the workplace—the union steward is NASA's recognized representative and our "eyes and ears" in the workplace;
  • enhance NASA's ability to represent its members under the terms of the Collective Agreement;
  • protect members and advance their rights, interests and causes through advocacy;
  • mobilize members in support of collective bargaining and other workplace initiatives;
  • provide informed, effective and timely assistance to members with workplace issues; and
  • attempt to resolve workplace issues in a manner that maintains a positive work environment.

Regular training is provided. For more information, the stewards policy is available on the NASA website.

If you are interested in becoming a NASA Union Steward, please contact your Labour Relations Officer (LRO) or email us at nasa@nasaunion.ca.

Member Action Team (MAT)

NASA's Member Action Team (MAT) is a tool for members to work together to grow and develop skills as engaged union members, and to organize against employer or government activity as needed. In a time of university restructuring and provincial budget cuts, the MAT enables members to fight back and stand up for their interests.

MATs are an increasingly popular resource at unions worldwide. They offer an opportunity for grassroots member engagement and leadership in their unions on their own terms and to their own abilities. MATs enable members to strategize and take action to improve their working conditions or prospects, either through political or job action.

If you are interested in joining NASA's Member Action Team (MAT) or want to learn more, please contact Jillian Pratt at jillian.pratt@nasaunion.ca.
