Chief Steward (all departments excluding call centre)
Peter has been involved with union activism since being hired in January of 2008 as a SP-05 Tax Auditor. He’s always been interested in helping members with interpreting the collective agreement, sharing union information regarding negotiations and campaigns, representing members in both informal and formal conflict resolution with management including grievances. He enjoys being a point of contact for union matters whether its participating in a plant gate or distributing information on union campaigns.
Peter formerly held the roles of President, Vice President and Treasurer of the UTE local in Thunder Bay Ontario. He’s received extensive training for grievance handling from both UTE and PSAC, staffing, conflict resolution, strike training, and various other topics through conferences and workshops. He also has held PSAC executive positions with the Thunder Bay and Northwestern Area Council and is currently the President of the Hamilton Area Council.
I look forward to discussing any issues with members and get to know my union brothers, sisters, and friends here in Hamilton!
