Stewards

NASA's Union Stewards are volunteers who work closely with the Labour Relations staff to ensure that our members receive prompt and helpful assistance when faced with issues on the job site. Union Stewards also ensure that NASA is promoted as a positive presence at the University and they work to improve the lines of communication between NASA and the members.

A Union Steward is NASA’s recognized representative in the workplace. A Union Steward is appointed by the Chief Steward of NASA to act on behalf of other members. NASA provides a steward education program that enables stewards to understand and interpret the collective agreement and to advocate on behalf of members who are experiencing problems at work.

Currently, NASA's Chief Steward is Dinuka Gunaratne. NASA's Union Stewards can represent a member anywhere on campus. Our current stewards, the areas they work in, and their contact phone numbers are listed below:
