Shop Steward Information

2021 Shop Steward Election Information
The SEIU 668 constitution requires steward elections every 2 years. It is important that we have a record of shop elections. In 2021 we are launching a new way of conducting steward elections electronically through a new Member Portal. Conducting elections in the member portal will make steward election record-keeping much easier.

*Note: Some shops may need to conduct their steward elections using paper ballots. Please work with your Internal Organizing Business agent to determine what will work best.

This packet, mailed by the Secretary-Treasurer to past stewards and shop leaders in January details the process of running a steward election in your shop

Member Portal Information 
Members must log-in to the Member Portal before they can participate in nominations or voting. All members should have received an email or letter with log-in credentials. Members may also log-in to the Member Portal using the personal email address that the union has on file for you.

Paper Election Materials (for shops not using the Member Portal)

*Note: Only use paper election materials if you have discussed with your Business Agent.

New Employee Orientation Steward Toolkit
Local 668 has designed a “New Member Experience: Steward Toolkit,” a collection of materials and tips designed to empower stewards and member leaders to recruit new hires into the union. Whether at a new employee orientation or in the workplace, stewards should be equipped to welcome, sign up, and educate new members about what the union is and how we build power.

To get access to the digital toolkit, please email Rachel Canning at
