The stewards training was put on by the Teamsters Training and Development Department. The stewards took plenty of information back to their workplaces.
The stewards training was followed by an internal organizing training on Monday, July 31, coordinated by the Training and Development Department and the Organizing Department. Both events were well attended.
"The training was excellent--it was well received, a great turnout and we are still getting good feedback," said Karla Schumann, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 104. "It is absolutely imperative that we build our membership, educate our membership and lead our membership."
