Getting involved with our union changed my life. Learning about my rights as a unionized worker and how to fight for them has driven my passion for our union. The more I learned, the more I shared. It’s this passion that keeps me going 9 ½ years later. I am so honoured that in addition to serving you as one of your ETT Executive Officers, colleagues around the province had the confidence to choose me as one of your ETFO Executive Members this past summer.
Through member education and coaching I have watched members truly raise their expectations and take their working conditions into their own hands. They have been willing to advocate for themselves, and others, and build solidarity in their schools while increasing their involvement in our union. Being a part of this has been inspiring and kept me going over the years.
Our union means so much to me and as a member of your ETT Executive, my goal is to see us grow in our strength and collective power. I ask for your vote so that I can continue this work with you.
