Convention a success

I want to take a couple of moments to thank you, the members of the NBU for having faith in me as your leader.
You’ve honoured me before and I appreciate it. I just can’t find the words to express my gratitude. Being your president has been one of the greatest honours of my life and I truly believe that the labour movement has become part of my soul.
The past years have been of great inspiration and reflection for me as I’ve had the opportunity to get to know many of you, listen to your stories of home or work, laugh and sometimes even to cry with you... but mainly just getting to know you better. A true gift to me.
On behalf of your executive, thank you for giving up your time and joining us this past weekend. Thank you for your support, kind words and participation. Convention was a great success and standing together we made decisions that will provide us with a clear mandate for the next two years. We can expect that the next couple of years to be challenging, however we have weathered storms before and we will continue to accomplish much as we push forward standing together.
In Solidarity,
Susie Proulx-Daigle
