Congratulations to our winners of our first National Public Service Week contest! Every day, PIPSC members go to work to protect and serve Canadians in a hundred different ways – and our 5 winners are no different.
Cory Graham (Manitoba Association of Government Engineers, Warren, MB) works to create change and improve environmental conditions at former mine sites. Cory is proud to be a PIPSC member because the union promotes fairness for all. Cory has served as a PIPSC steward since 2014.
Chung Yip (Sunnybrook Radiation Therapists, North York, ON) works as a radiation therapist at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Through Chung’s connection to the union, he understands the labour rules in his workplace and has been able to maintain full-time employment through the pandemic.
Josée Varner (Health Services, Calgary, AB) works as a nurse for Veterans Affairs, and is proud of her work supporting clients while working from home during the pandemic. Josée is proud to be a PIPSC member because she feels supported and heard by the union.
