We have three people working for you in the office at 51 King St, myself, Karen Littlewood, the Chief Negotiator and Benefits Officer Tom Barnes and the Grievance Officer, Jessica Burnie. The office is staffed from 8:30-4:30 on weekdays and you can also reach us by voicemail or email. If you have ANY questions or concerns about your job or working conditions, please contact one of us. There are also union leaders in your worksite who may be able to help you.
