Unifor National Executive Board member Cheryl Robinson was awarded the Women in Leadership Award from the New Brunswick Federation of Labour on March 22.
Committed to advancing workers rights and women’s equality, Robinson has been active on all Unifor campaigns, particularly those addressing women’s equality, and was a Canadian Labour Congress delegate to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women in 2012 and 2013.
She has also been active at the NBFL and the Saint John Labour Council and is a very proud Unifor local union leader.
The award recognizes women who have distinguished themselves in the labour movement for making a lasting and significant contribution to the promotion of the principles and policies of their union, the broader labour movement and to the advancement of the social and economic welfare of workers in the province.
Unifor congratulates Robinson for this accomplishment and thanks her for the dedication and talent she brings to the movement.
