Local Union No. 647 has created a ‘UNION STEWARD AWARD” and every year the Local will recognizes the value and contributions of one outstanding UNION STEWARD.

The award is named after one of our longest serving presidents of our Local: Brother Stewart Powers. Stewart Powers exemplified union dedication and trade unionism. Every Labour Day from now on, our Executive Board will select one Steward who has demonstrated excellence in trade unionism every year.

All rank and file members can nominate Stewards who have displayed the above characteristics by filling out the attached form and faxing it or mailing it to the Union office.

Please nominate a Steward before August 31 (see below nomination sheet)
