New President, and Stewards

Please welcome Joel Gartner as our President!


As of last week I've stepped into the CIU Manitoba Branch President role left vacant by Joel Tetreault this summer.  He has left some enormous shoes to fill and I am very much looking forward to the challenge.  I may have to ask for your patience at times during the transition phase as I hope to be as thorough as possible while getting my feet under me as fast as I can.

I have to thank 4th VP Alyssa Samm for stepping in as interim President for the past several weeks, and for all her work thus far during the transition.

We also welcome Jerid Hiebert who has joined the Executive.  Amitav Sarkar, and Pam Sutton-Henderson have joined us as Union Stewards.  Thanks to you both for your commitments!

If anyone else would like to become (more) involved in the union, or would simply like to ask a few questions, feel free to reach out to your colleagues that are currently active in the union.  Thanks!

Joel Gartner
Manitoba Branch President

Interim Branch President
Dear sisters and brothers,
It is with great sadness that I must inform you that I’m resigning immediately as the CIU Manitoba Branch President. I have accepted a new position as Service Officer with the Union of Northern Workers in Yellowknife, NT. I thank you all for the opportunity that you gave me in representing you.
Alyssa Samm, 4th VP, will taking over in the interim. Please send all of your concerns or updates to theciumanitoba@gmail.com inbox. For anyone interested in stepping up to become branch president please e-mail Alyssa at the inbox. The appropriate steps (election, executive approval, etc…) will be implemented as necessary. I have complete confidence that the remaining executive members will be able to continue fighting the good fight against this difficult employer. I encourage those have an interest in becoming more involved to do so. The success of this organization is based on individuals who step up to battle injustice. As such I wish you all of the best in the future and to always pursue the things that make you happy in life!
In solidarity,
Joël Tétreault
