Role of a Steward

Local 52 Stewards are trained to represent and defend the interests of our members.

We encourage you to contact your Union Steward if you have any questions or concerns regarding your contract or the Employer's actions. If you are not sure if you have a grievance or if you wish to file a grievance, please contact a Union Steward as soon as possible. There are time limits for filing a grievance that must be met (10 business days) in order for your grievance to be filed.

 The only process available for enforcing the Collective Agreement is for you to file a grievance. While we will always attempt to resolve issues informally, sometimes a grievance is the only way to get resolution to your issues.

If you have any questions about the Collective Agreement, or if you need representation at a disciplinary, investigative or other meeting, please contact a Union Steward from the list below.

 In addition to the Union Stewards listed below, Local 52 has a Chief Union Steward. If you are unable to contact a Union Steward, you can reach The Chief Steward via email at You may also call the Local 52 office at (403) 220-8511 and leave a  message. Messages are checked regularly.


If your matter is urgent and you require immediate assistance, please contact AUPE at 1-800-232-7284.
