Member of the Month

The Member of the Month for November is ALISON ROTHWELL. She is also a member and President of OSSTF district 35, the labour union that represents Support Staff at Brock. When Alison  became a member of our Unit 1, she did not shy away from sharing experience and extending her support to CUPE 4207. Solidarity!

Alison’s election buddy Quee-Queg. She takes her out canvassing. Both of them were busy in the recent federal elections campaign.

I joined CUPE 4207 in 2017 as I returned to school to pursue my graduate work here at Brock and am a proud Union member of both CUPE and OSSTF. I’ve been so impressed by how active and passionate our executive members are and the many opportunities they continue to offer members to become engaged, educated, and involved – locally and nationally.

Most recently I’ve really enjoyed being part of the bargaining process as an observer during negotiations.

It’s a terrific opportunity to learn more about the functioning of our Union and to see, first hand, how hard our bargaining team is working to better our working conditions. I strongly encourage members to get more involved in their Union and to make sure to take advantage of all CUPE has to offer! I am thrilled to be member of the month!
