Stewards’ Council

Interested in representing yourself, your colleagues and your department? Become a GEU Department Steward!

Stewards are an integral and important part of our ability to assist our members.   Stewards are GEU members who function as union member representatives  in their MSU departments.  Each employing department can elect one Steward for every fifteen members in that department. If you don’t see a steward for your department, we encourage you to get involved and take on that role! You can also email the Chief Information Officer for more info at:

Stewards Council meets monthly and is the major decision-making body of our Union. If you are interested in serving your departments as a Steward, please call the office for details at 332-2824 or email the office at

   An active group of members can make the difference between having power…                       and being powerless!
