Get Involved with Your Union!
There is a place for everyone in ALE and a range of important roles that we need members to assume for a strong union and first contract. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more and get involved!
Stewards: Stewards are the heart of our union, connecting each of the 51 member offices and the Finance Division directly to ALE, empowering staff by ensuring they know their rights, and helping to address workplace issues.
There are now union Stewards in over HALF of all member offices, and in the Finance Division! Learn more about the Steward role here and volunteer to become a Steward here!
Contract Action Team (CAT): Attend ALE actions in support of our contract negotiations and perform outreach to mobilize union membership. If you want to assist in ALE's organizing efforts for a strong contract sign up here!
Membership: Engage with staff & encourage them to join ALE, orient new ALE members, answer questions about dues and other union matters, and help plan membership socials and other community building events.
Welfare Fund: Help lead the search for a new Management Benefits Fund.
Bylaws: Assist in drafting ALE's internal anti-harassment code, formalizing general election processes, and writing union rules and bylaws.
