What is your role in the union?

I was elected as a Steward for the local 70712 at our last Annual General Meeting in 2019. I started as a building contact for my local, and then became a building representative, and I am now a Steward.  I see my role as being a point of contact for PSAC members, ensuring members in my building are up-to-date with PSAC and local activities, and representing them on first level grievances.  As a worker, I am a full-time Chemistry Technologist at the National Wildlife Research Center at Carleton University

What is your role (s) in the union?

I was recently elected President of Directly Chartered Local 73100 (DCL) for the Salvation Army Booth Centre on October 22, 2019. 

When did you first get involved and why?

January 21, 2019 marked the first meeting of PSAC’s Gender Equity Task Force. The Task Force, chaired by Ontario REVP Sharon DeSousa, originated from a meeting of the National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) in December 2017. The NHRC women’s working group put forward a recommendation to strike a task force charged with examining equity representation within the union on all leadership bodies and develop proposals to increase women’s participation throughout PSAC, and in all areas of union activity.
