Steward Rules to Live By

1. Do something even if it’s wrong, but do something!

2. Never be afraid to wade into a fight!

3. Your right, even when your wrong, your right.

4. If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit!

5. The contract always says what you need it to say, even if it doesn’t say that!

6. Always stay connected to your Local Union!

7. Never let management tell you how to be a steward!

8. Always be on the side of the member, never take managements side, even if they are right!

9. Never let management talk to a driver alone!

10. When a case rises to termination level, talk to the driver to get all information before you go in the office. Don’t learn the drivers side while you are in there!

11. Never take the management word on what happened. They will always slant it to their benefit!

12. Always be proud you are a Teamster!
