Kevin Forbes has been elected as Recorder


Hello - my name is Kevin Forbes, and I've accepted a nomination for the position of National Executive Recorder. I have been a CUSW member in good standing since 2006. During this time period I have been an active CUSW member, and have participated as a volunteer in two conventions in Niagara Falls, and attended many Labour Day Parades representing CUSW.

I have been on the Hamilton-Niagara Unit Executive for nearly seven years. I started mid-term as Recorder, and then continued in the Recorder position for another three-year period. During that time I joined the Education and Training Committee for our unit. We put together training courses for Lockout Tag Out, Code Update, and Arc Flash training. I also attended a training program intended to train Stewards, and Health and safety reps. The training also involved an in depth view of the Chestnut Park Accord, and Inn On The Park Accord

Following my position as Recorder I joined the Unit Executive as a Board member, and took a course at the CUSW office to better understand the operations of the National Executive. During this three-year period I volunteered to be part of the Unit Recruitment Committee, and conducted interviews for potential members, while given the honour of welcoming new members.

So with this bio I hope you will take the time to consider electing me to become part of the National Executive of CUSW as the Recorder in this election.

Thank you Kevin Forbes.
