In October 2006 I started working for INCO (VALE today) as a Plating Tank Man in the Refinery. In the last 11 years I’ve trained in numerous jobs within the Refinery and worked with a lot of great people.

In joining Health and Safety shortly after hiring, I’ve spent most of my time on the committee as a committee member, filling in as Alternate WSR over the years and currently in WSR role full time.

I became a Steward to help make a difference along the way and I have advanced up to the “Lead” Steward in the Refinery. As the Lead Steward I am also member of the USW Grievance Committee.

Recently I have joined the Executive Committee and the Emergency Planning Committee.

I feel fortunate for experiences and knowledge I’ve received during my career through the USW and the work I performed.
