Casting your vote in the CS ELECTION is an important Role in forming the CS NATIONAL EXECUTIVE FOR YOUR FUTURE!

Virtual from ST. JOHN’S NL

As a PIPSC CS Member and Steward in the Federal Public Service for 20 plus years I have extensively broadened my knowledge and gained Experience by serving members in almost all aspects of the PIPSC/CS Organization (listed below). This has brought me to a level of confidence to ask you the CS Members’ to give me the Opportunity and Privilege to SERVE you as the Next Vice President of the CS Group.

I know that there will always be challenges in our workplace for members wherever it maybe and the past year has proven this to us all. Just to name a few of these challenges: BARGAINING, REMOTE WORK, ACCOMADATION, FAMILY LIFE BALANCE, SICK LEAVE, CLASSIFICATION and JOB SECURITY… I know it is impossible or wrong to promise to make it a perfect world for my members’ but I can assure you my pleasure comes from when I am able to be part of a resolve that makes a member HAPPY to simply get up each morning and look forward to their place of Profession.

If elected I will work hard for you, continue to have open communication and be the voice for all members concerns at all levels!
