What is the role of a Section Rep?

The section rep is a liaison between their section and the executive. We envision this as a rotating role that members can take on for a specific time period that is manageable for them.


  • be in contact with coworkers in their section to flag any arising issues for the executive
  • organize section meetings if necessary
  • provide any needed feedback to executive
  • share information/reminders from the executive within their section - e.g. “hey there is a local survey, please complete it!”
  • be in contact with other section reps as needed


What’s the difference between a Section Rep and a Steward?

Think of a Section Rep as a sort of “Information Steward.” They do not do representation vis a vis the employer (unless they also happen to be a steward :) ). They act as a link between members, the executive, and other section reps within the local itself.

I’m interested in becoming a Section Rep. Who do I contact?
