Hello, my name is Kelly Johnson and I have the privilege of being your next PPWC National President starting July 1, 2022.
I am humbled to have been elected in April at our National convention and look forward to working with everyone to continue to promote our values as we have over the past 60 years. We have challenges ahead of us, we always have, but together we can continue to put our members best interest’s forward while looking ahead to offer those who need better protection and need a welcoming Union to call their own.
I would like to thank my Family for the support they have giving me, especially my wife Janet who has been fully behind my transition to become National President, my home Local PPWC Local 1 who are an incredible bunch of great hard working people. I know my Local is in good hands and I thank those who are stepping up.
I want to thank Gary Fiege for his vision and leadership over the years, Gary is truly a great person and only had our best interests at heart which is what a great leader does. I want to thank Rod Gallant for his unwavering commitment to this organization over the past years, when things got tough Rod was always there and will still be counted on.
I also want to thank and congratulate Todd Smith and Geoff Dawe, I look forward to working with you two side by side, arm in arm. Todd’s experience and exceptional abilities to promote the PPWC will be of great comfort for myself and Geoff as we transition into the National office Both Chen and Chantel, our office administrator’s have been absolutely great to work with since convention, we’re lucky to have the two of you at our office.
Now is the time to get to know each other, roll up our sleeves and work on the issues that are important to us.
Together, we will continue to make a difference in working lives.
