Executive Board

Melinda Rebalkin, Second Vice President

I have been a member of Local 248P at Maple Leaf Food’s McLeod Plant for over 30 years and am currently posted in the new Pure Link department as a Packer/Recorder.

I hold the Chief Shop Steward position and I am the Second Vice President on our Union’s Executive Committee. I previously served as Department Steward for over three years. I ran for this position because I am committed to working in harmony with our members to resolve situations before they become problems, and I know I can be their voice when dealing with the Company.

Courses which I have enjoyed participating in include the Organizing Seminar and Women’s Seminar/Conference.

In our community I am the President of our local Skating Club with Skate Canada, and I have been active with our School Council Committee for the past five years.
