Getting involved in the union to defend and respect our rights has always come naturally to me. Coming from union activist parents, I was instilled with values related to solidarity, community, equity and justice from childhood.
A nurse for 11 years, I started being a union activist in 2010 during my nursing internship. The FIQ in the middle of negotiations, I followed the progress of our future working conditions with interest.
My experience is wide-ranging and includes holding several local union positions, including that of president. I have experienced 3 provincial negotiations, 2 raiding periods, 1 local negotiation and the Negotiation Council.
I practice my nursing profession, interweaving fieldwork with that of a committed activist. I see, experience and share the consequences of the rapid deterioration of our working conditions, of organizational violence, MOT, of the near impossibility of balancing work, family and personal life for our 76,000 women and men members!
Determined, motivated and with my expertise, it is with humility that I hope to have your trust as a member of the Negotiating Committee.
