Steward Training Conducted for Branch 258
On Wednesday, April 24, Branch 258 conducted a steward training which was attended by new stewards, prospective stewards, and interested carriers from both Reading and Lancaster area branches. Main presenters were Reading president Fred Ranalli and Vice President Richard McDonough. The event was also attended by some veteran stewards who contributed some of their experiences and knowledge to the presentation. Due to the volume and quality of the information presented, the slideshow of presentation materials will be added to the list of informational links on this page. These materials are available with one easy click for attendees who look for an information refresher, as well as for any carrier who is interested in learning more about being a steward.
