This book serves as an action guide for the Union Rep, Steward and Union Activist Leader whose hard work, labor and unyielding sacrafices often go un-noticed by the people whom they serve and the Union leadership from whom they get their direction. It is a book of empowerment in dealing with the day to day trials and tribulations within the labor movement. In this book you will be empowered in terms of learning how to: motivate a Steward Council, effectively deal with members who get on your last nerve, understand the psychological mind-set you need when reprsenting members in grievances and arbitration, a detailed analysis of the 7 Steps of Just Cause and its proper application, and much much, more.The A.C.T.I.O.N Guide for Union Reps, Stewards, and Leaders will motivate you, excite you, agitate you, and hopefully move you into action. If this book serves any purpose at all, it is my hope that after reading it, you will view your work not as a job, but a calling--in a movement--for social change!
