An authentic ally!

Hello to all our network healthcare professionals,

Since 2002, I have been a nurse in the cardiac ICU at the IUCPQ, a centre dedicated to receiving patients infected with COVID-19 in the capital. Since 2002, I have been an activist among my healthcare professional colleagues and my friends. I am a passionate and engaged union rep. I have been fighting for our working conditions for 19 years. I started my union career in 2014 when I was elected as RLT VP. Next, I was elected local president of the SIIQ team. On April 1, 2019, I joined the Negotiation Committee. On March 17, 2020, I left the Negotiation Committee for personal reasons. I went to join my colleagues and friends in the field during this pandemic that revealed the true face of our network. With no vaccine at hand, we braved this virus, which will have transformed our network for years to come. I maintained my connections with negotiations by joining the Negotiation Council, all while still working in the field. I am a hybrid union representative.

I am a pragmatic, energetic, man of action. With my union, field, and personal experience, I will be the treasury spokesperson for healthcare professionals. We need a wind of change! I have a good understanding of the basics of treasury, the connections with employees, the Union Defence Fund, and everything related to this mandate. For several years now I have presented the forecasts and projections for our local budget. I have good communication skills and team spirit.

We are the superheroes of the network. Despite the repercussions of the ministerial orders, we have forged ahead without back tracking. It is time to get closer to members in the field to support a network that has been sick for so many years. I reflect the values of healthcare professionals and I have the strength of my convictions.

Today, I am asking to be your ally for the next four years.

Thank you!
