GSU president Jim Brown is one of three finalists nominated for the 2017 Safe Worker Award sponsored by the Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB). The winner of the award will be announced at the annual WCB Compensation Institute being held at TCU Place in Saskatoon on March 20, 2017.
“Recognition of Jim’s steadfast work and commitment to safe and healthy workplaces is long overdue,” said GSU general secretary Hugh Wagner. “He’s served as a worker representative on Viterra’s central OH&S Committee for many years where he has actively agitated for worker safety.”
In addition to being president of GSU, Jim is a member of GSU Local 1 (Viterra) and has worked for his employer for nearly 30 years. He currently works at Viterra’s terminal elevator in Balgonie.
