I really want to do a fantastic job of representing my coworkers on the job. Most of the information I have read has been on stewards of other types of industries (factories, custodians, teachers, etc.) What are the special skills a RN steward needs? Do RN's prefer the militant old school approach or are there better ways now? How did you keep track of what was happening on the floor/unit? How do you get information to members (meetings, email, etc.)? Are there any special websites for nurse stewards?
Sorry if this is long, but I'm starting to see some posts here from those who really care about working with union nurses.
Any advice would be appreciated.
