Our goal is to have a consistent point person for each member, and with over 5,000 workers covered by Local 768, we need to recruit hundreds of new activists. Click here to read about our Member Action Team structure, integrating MAT Leaders and Stewards. There is no prerequisite for being a MAT Leader other than volunteering to join this structure. In the beginning, we'll ask you to simply help communicate between the membership and the leadership, letting us know what issues our members are facing. As you get more training and experience, Stewards will be asked to represent members at meetings with management and eventually play a larger role once you are ready.
