Dear IBEW Local 1200 members,
Are you a strong communicator who is interested in being a voice for your fellow union workers? WBAL-TV and Radio is looking for two more shop stewards to help Local 1200 and your current shop steward, Bob Moore, best represent the men and women of IBEW at Hearst. The CBS Washington DC Bureau is looking for two more shop stewards to help Local 1200 and your current shop steward, Greg Shaffir, best represent the men and women of IBEW at CBS.
Being a steward means stepping up to play a key role in building our union. While not always an easy job, the role of a steward can be deeply rewarding—and something to be proud of. The union steward is a key “link” in our union. As a steward, you make collective bargaining agreements meaningful by helping your co-workers implement their contract and defend their rights on a day-to-day basis. You are in the best position to understand your coworkers’ concerns and priorities, organize with them to take action, and communicate their priorities to other union leaders.
