I have been a member of PIPSC since 1993 and have been active in the union since 1994 when I attended my first CS Group AGM. In 1995 I became a member of the CS Group Executive and served as Member at Large, Communications Officer and Treasurer over a period of 10 years. As Communications Officer I was in charge of the launch of the CS Group website and at the time, CS Group forums where we could discuss topics and ideas.
Since leaving the CS Group Executive I created a CS Sub-Group within PWGSC for our buildings which later become the Ottawa East CS Sub-Group. I am currently sitting as Vice President/Secretary of the Sub-Group.
I was one of the key members on the CS Group UCS team back in the late 1990s and gave input to the Bargaining team during several rounds of negotiations. I was a founding member of the IT Services and Projects Committee of PIPSC. I have also attended all but one PIPSC AGM as a delegate since 1995.
I would now like your vote for member-at-large to bring my knowledge back to the CS Group along with the knowledge that I have gained by working with the Sub-Group and Branch levels. We are at a crucial point for unions with Bill C-377 and past knowledge is very important to get us through this time.
Thank you for your support.
