Transitions at LUFA

(Sudbury – April 3, 2018)

Dear Colleagues,

We have regretfully accepted the resignation of Jim Ketchen as President, effective April 16, 2018. His record of service, which began in 2005, includes three terms as the president. We will miss the insights and expertise that Jim brought to his work on the Executive, the Board, and the many committees that he served on, as well as representing us at OCUFA and CAUT. (We will also miss his robust good sense of humour!) We are indeed grateful for his commitment and leadership over the years, especially during the strike of 2017. Jim will continue to serve on the Board as the Past President.

At the same time, we are delighted to welcome our newly elected President, Fabrice Colin, who will commence his term on April 16. Known for his passion and dedication, Fabrice has already distinguished himself in many capacities at LUFA, including on the Board and on the bargaining team for three collective agreements. We look forward to working with him as we strive to improve the working lives of LUFA members.

In solidarity,
The LUFA Executive
