A long time employee of 18 years Johan Axen is leaving VPL for a change in scenery. Many of you may have worked with Johan over the years particularly in Carnegie, where he’s been a clerical for a long time. His loyalty to his job, the Union and especially his concern for the public and the services we provide represents the empathy and common sense we all should share.
In his own words he would like to say to the membership:
“I have been with VPL for 18 of the past 20 years but now it seems like a good time to enact a change. I have met and worked with many bright and engaging colleagues over the years at all the various locations I have worked at. I wish you all the best for the future. Keep up the good fight!”
On behalf of CUPE 391, I would like to say good luck but not goodbye since I’m sure we’ll be seeing you around considering how many friends you have here.
