Fresh from New Brunswick Community College (NBCC), Alex began his Instrumentation and Control Technician apprenticeship at the LNG site in Saint John in September 2010, before joining Lorneville.
From Newfoundland and Labrador to British Columbia, Lorneville services North America’s leaders in the petrochemical, power generation, pulp and paper, and mining and minerals industries.
After completing his apprenticeship and becoming a journeyman, Alex continued his career with Lorneville, and boasts an impressive 12.5 years at the Saint John LNG site providing preventative maintenance and managing instrumentation on site.
The Benefits of Unionized Labour & GPMC | NMC
Alex sees the benefits of being part of a union as providing well-paying careers after completing school and opportunities to complete apprenticeships at one site. He feels that the GPMC | NMC ensures that workers have a voice in their union, provides sustainable employment, and benefits that protect his entire family. Alex feels that he can focus on his job knowing that the GPMC | NMC is negotiating on his behalf.
A Family Man
Alex is now 34 years old, and happily married with two young children. He met his beautiful wife, Cailey, who was originally from British Columbia, while she was living in Saint John attending university. She successfully earned her Masters of Arts in Psychology, and secured a position with Veterans Affairs. Together, they have two boys who are three years old (Drew) and one year old (Connor).
With two active toddlers, Alex and Cailey are kept very busy. They enjoy spending time traveling and spending time at the lake visiting with family and friends. When Alex has free time, you will likely find him on a golf course or at the hockey rink where he continues to play in a recreational hockey league.
