Local Lodge President, Wilbert K. Woods, requested that his Shops Committee-persons receive training on the Role of the Steward. Local 2297 and District Lodge 2020 Educator, Theodore McNeal facilitated the training on Saturday, August 22, 2020. For the majority of the Stewards in attendance, this was their first training class since they were elected or appointed to the Steward position and the Educator was convinced they were eager to learn. Because of the requirement to social distance and have no more than 10 people in the room, the class size was reduced. President Woods has said he is planning at least 3 more training opportunities in the not so distant future. The Zone 110 Business Representative, Dave Carroll, assisted the Educator with the logistics and all in all it turned out to be a good day for learning.
