Dear CULE Sisters and Brothers,
I am writing to request your support in my run for President of the Canadian Union of Labour Employees. Over the past several months many of the membership have expressed deep dissatisfaction with the direction our union has taken. There is a strong resolve for change.
I live by the mantra “Be the change you want to see in the world” so after picturing the changes that I wanted to see in our union I decided to accept the responsibility for the overall direction of CULE. As President I will ensure that the Executive accepts the clear responsibility of carrying out the business of the union in an accountable and transparent manner.
You have my commitment to creating a respectful environment that encourages open communication between the members and their elected leaders. I offer you my excellent oral and written communication skills; my ability to remain calm in highly charged situations; my integrity; my professionalism; and my adherence to union principles.
Truly working together we can be part of a great union, one that we can all be very proud to call our own.
I ask for your support and your vote for me as President of CULE, together we can make the change we want to see.
“If you do what you have always done, you’ll get what you always got.”
Sister Lisa Garnier
