A officer in a union, whose job it is to enforce a union contract, in addition to his regular job, with no extra pay. Viewed by the employer as a "socialist puke", by lazy co-workers as a company sellout, and by everyone else as insane.
The shop steward is a fucking communist, we should fire his ass.

I called in sick 15 times this month because I was hung over, and the shop steward didn't do shit about it when I got fired.
