RMG Elections 2018 - Richard East

Position: Quebec Regional Representative


My name is Richard East and I am running for the position of Quebec Regional Representative.

I will be retiring on August 22, 2018 and I plan to get involved on behalf of our retired members.

During my working years, I served as President of the Rouyn-Noranda AFS-CRA Sub-Group for 22 years, President of the Abitibi-Témiscamingue Branch for 18 years, and member of the Quebec Regional Executive for 3 years.

I have been a Steward for the past 20 years and have been attending all the Quebec Regional Council for the last 18 years. I have also been a delegate to PIPSC National AGMs since 1997.

In addition, I served on some of PIPSC national committees such as the By-Laws and Policy Committee and the Elections Committee, and I was an evaluator for the Legacy Foundation scholarships for 8 years.

I plan to get involved in issues affecting retired members, e.g. Bill C-27, which is threatening our pensions, the Public Service Health Care Plan, and the indexation of the death benefit.

As you can see, I have been very active during my working years and will be equally involved during my retirement years if you choose me as your representative.

Thank you for your support.

Richard East
