Adam Major

Hello Members,

My name is Adam Major. I have been a CUPE member for 10 years. Most recently with CUPE 374 for the last year after coming over from CUPE 2011. I am a father to 2 kids and actively involved in the community coaching Baseball (National little league) and volunteering at JBAA rugby club. As a Shop Steward for CUPE 2011, I grew a  passion for Labour movements and Mental health issues. As your representative for Recording Secretary I hope to add these skills to an all ready diverse executive team.

Thank you for your consideration.

Yours in Solidarity,

I’ve been a member of CUPE since 2018 and have been responsible for meeting preparation, follow-up and recording secretary to many Council and Committee meetings since. I assist with records management and writing of policies and bylaws. I also held a temp position in Nanaimo with Human Resources where I assisted with processing and reviewing Worksafe claims.
