The Executive Committee is the principal administrative body of Local 4948. It consists of the President, the Vice-President, the Secretary-Treasurer and the Recording Secretary. They are elected by the membership every three years by way of a secret ballot vote.
What We Do
The Committee conducts the daily business of the Local. It makes the decisions and takes the actions necessary to protect the work-related interests of the members; all in accordance with the Local’s By-laws and the National CUPE Constitution.
The Committee works closely with the rest of the Executive Board to ensure that all members’ views are heard and their concerns addressed.

I have worked at the Toronto Public Library for over 15 years, most recently at the North York Central Library in the Business, Science, & Technology department.
One of my earlier experiences with the Union took place when, as a Site Monitor for the “Leading to Reading” after-school program, I was informed by management that they were eliminating my position.
Thankfully, the Union was there for me and made sure there was a process in place for my redeployment. Without the Union, I could have lost my job.
I decided right then that I needed to give back to my Union. I wanted to join the fight to advocate for libraries and help protect the Library Workers who deliver top-notch service to the world’s busiest urban library system!
Since that time, I have been involved with the Union in various roles, including sitting on the Health and Safety Committees, the Executive Board, and as the Ontario Representative and Co-Chair for CUPE’s National Library Workers’ Committee. I was elected President of TPLWU, Local 4948, in November 2019.
The strength and resolve of Library Workers, and from the communities we serve, inspires and motivates me to be a proud advocate for libraries and for the membership I humbly serve.
