From Steven:

“I believe unionized labour is about membership, representation and transparency. A union is only as strong as its representation — its sole purpose is to serve and to protect the members and their interests. A union is a brotherhood and a sisterhood where all of its members work together for their common betterment. A unionized workforce means a workforce that is well trained, motivated and safe.

The GPMC | NMC is a collaborative approach to unionized labour relations and works to balance stability, fairness and efficiency. The GPMC provides certainty to maintenance contractors while ensuring that the members of the partner building trades meet the highest standards of representation.”

Steven’s hobbies include boxing, studying Japanese (to speak with his Japanese nephews) and following the Toronto Maples Leafs.
