It has been both a privilege and an honour to accompany the BTS Associates on their journey to become unionized in Ontario.
I was inspired to hear their personal stories and witness their sheer will to push forward.
I want to see them gain full representation; I want them to have fair compensation; and most importantly, I want them to know that they can support themselves and their families without fear of termination for demanding equality.
The application for certification has been approved and we are now determining our next steps. Although this process is still far from over, we have conquered the biggest hurdle.
The coming months will be very exciting and I look forward to continuing the journey together.
President, Local 1996-O
