It is with great sadness that the Institute has learned of the untimely passing of our friend and colleague André Lortie.
As a long-time and highly-respected Institute Negotiator, André worked tirelessly over the years to defend the interests of tens of thousands of PIPSC members, notably with the CS, NUREG and University of Ottawa Groups. He was held in high esteem by both his colleagues and his Employer counterparts.
The Institute would like to extend its sincere condolences to André’s family and to his many friends. It was a pleasure and a privilege to know him. His commitment to PIPSC members was unwavering and he will be truly missed.
PIPSC members and staff who wish to pay their final respects to André are invited to do so on his memorial page.
