Bryan Van Wilgenburg - SP Group

I am a Meteorologist Program Manager (MT) with Environment and Climate Change Canada in Ottawa. I previously worked as an MT in Montréal, Edmonton, and Winnipeg. I am bilingual and comfortable addressing members in the language of their preference.

I was the SP Bargaining Coordinator for the previous round in which we achieved substantial improvements to the collective agreement in record time, despite a very complex round. In the weeks immediately following the bargaining round, I arranged a communication blitz to assure that all SP members had the opportunity to engage with our team through in person meetings and virtual town halls. Previously, as Mobilization Coordinator our team designed and procured the SP flags, engaged our members in mapping exercises, and laid the ground work for the ‘Science not Silence’ buttons and t-shirts.

The aftermath of the pandemic will present both challenges and opportunities. I am available to hear your concerns, and I will work tirelessly to represent you.

Leadership Highlights:

• SP National Executive (2 terms)

o SP Group Bargaining Coordinator

o Mobilization Coordinator – SP Executive

o SP Bargaining Team (previous two rounds)

• Union Management Consultation at Local, Regional and National levels

• PIPSC Steward since 2011
