Member Services

The employment policies and procedures can sometimes seem complicated and overwhelming especially when a member needs to access them at a time of illness or crisis.

To assist members to navigate their options and access the necessary paperwork, the Local provides Member Services which can be accessed either by phone or email.

Anne Lorimer, Member Services Manager, can provide information and assistance in the following areas:
