  • What I will bring to the office:

    This office needs to have accountability. Once elected, I will bring dedication and follow-through to the office. I will contact members promptly with any questions about their grievance, follow up with management until there is a resolution, and update the member. It is important for members to know the results of their grievances, and that is how I would show my accountability to the membership.

        • Detail Oriented – I pay attention to detail, I will research where needed and like to be thoroughly prepared and know the rules
        • Ability To Learn – I will take time to learn the RSMC contract and about inside workers rights, I am adaptable and will give full attention to learning everything I need to represent the membership thoroughly
        • Endorsements:

          Warren Melnyk, Shop Steward, Regional Route Verification rep:

          I believe Carl makes a good nominee, with his experience in Shop Steward duties, Health & Safety and Route Measurement, he would be an asset as a full time Grievance Officer.”
