Steward Conference 2019

Members Matter!

This year's Steward Conference theme is “Members Matter.” The conference will focus on how contract negotiations have a direct impact on stewards and their power to protect their members. OCSEA prides itself on providing its members with excellent representation and on being a leader in Ohio’s labor movement. At the conference, we will prepare to fight for our members’ rights in the face of current and future challenges. OCSEA, AFSCME and the labor movement are facing vicious attacks on working women and men on many fronts with unprecedented intensity and frequency. We will explore ways to meet these challenges head-on. All members are welcome to attend!
