Last weekend 136 Stewards took part in the annual Hamilton Stewards’ conference.

Stewards took part in a number of courses, including:

  • Organizing,
  • Intro to Health & Safety,
  • Invisible Hazards,
  • Enlighten Empower & Engage,
  • Preparing for Arbitration,
  • Essentials of Compensation & Accommodation Law, and;
  • Stewards Training.

Attendees were greeted by Director Rob Nicholas followed by guest speak Andrea Horwath MPP for Hamilton Centre and Leader of the NDP in Ontario.

A big thank you to everyone who attended this weekend especially to the generous stewards who purchased raffle tickets for a chance to win some great prizes including a 48” television Blue Jays tickets and a 50/50 draw. Over the course of the weekend our stewards in Hamilton raised over $6,400 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada.

We hope everyone had a great time and look forward to seeing you next year.
