Spring into Summer with ServicePlus and WIN!

ServicePlus logo

Steward Prize

Elizabeth Ptasznik (SP Group, Prairie/NWT)

This year was no exception, for our desire to thank and recognize our stewards. They form an important network of members that assist their colleagues with labour relations matters and communicate information on bargaining, events, and more recently, our contest.

As a special thank you to our stewards, a draw was held just for them. Thank you Elizabeth and all our stewards. All of your continuing efforts are appreciated by PIPSC, ServicePlus and the membership.

The annoyingly long, high pitched squealing, yet beautiful sound of the Dog-day Cicada, children playing in a swimming pool, the “pwoof” of the barbeque lighting, a blender crushing ice for your favourite frozen concoction and the laughter shared amongst good company...what better sounds are there to hear during the summer than those?

Well, if you were one of our four winners in the Spring into Summer with ServicePlus contest, the ringing of the phone to give you the good news may have won over!?!

The ServicePlus team randomly drew three contest entries from the thousands of entries that correctly answered the skill-testing question, as well as a special steward’s name.

And the winners are:
