PEF Toolkit for Leaders header image

PEF is a member-driven union.  Thank you for taking an active role.  Whether you are a steward, a division leader or serve on one of our statewide committees, this page is where you’ll find various documents, forms and other materials to help you conduct the work of the union.


Steward Handbook (revised Nov. 2022)

Stewards are often a union members’ first point of contact when they have a problem at work.  They must be familiar with the contract and the various articles in it that outline the processes which protect the rights of PEF members on the job. The union conducts steward trainings throughout the year on a variety of topics. Currently, the trainings are offered virtually and stewards will be invited via their personal email addresses to sign up and attend.  The remaining 2023 dates are:

  • Sept. 13: Organizing
  • Nov. 15:  Understanding the Grievance Procedure
  • Dec. 20: Discipline and Discharge
