I am currently a TO with HHT at the Royalmount site in Montreal. I have been volunteering with the RCEA since 2006, first as a steward and now 2nd VP.
In 2012, the RCEA Constitution was updated and the requirements for the 2nd Vice President position allowed for a steward in any region to be eligible. I have now been your 2nd VP since 2014.
The role of the 2nd VP has changed significantly since 2012. Initially, the 2nd VP acted as a liaison with the regional stewards and the RCEA office in Ottawa. Currently, VP’s have an active role in the management of the national office, and consult on numerous union/employer committees. They also participate in multiple membership concerns. Some of my current committees are: Pay Equity, Joint Consultation, Workforce Adjustment Consultation, and all COVID labour relations.
Outside the lab and the union, I enjoy time with family and friends, gardening, cycling and all outdoors activities and traveling.
