Recording Secretary – Phil Wachel
Hello Friends, My name is Phil Wachel and I am the Recording Secretary of the Local. I have been a CUPE 4207 member since 2004, but I did not get involved in the union until 2011. I played a part in organizing the English as a Second Language (ESL) Instructors into Unit 3 almost ten years ago. In my free time I spend a lot of time watching Toronto Blue Jays games. I also like to think that I have a bit of a ‘green thumb’ for vegetable gardening. In Solidarity, Phil.
