What do people join OPSEU/SEFPO for?


OPSEU/SEFPO President Warren (Smokey) Thomas

“I started getting involved in OPSEU/SEFPO when I was working as a mental health nurse. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made – I hope you’ll make the same good decision, too.”'

OPSEU/SEFPO First Vice-President/Treasurer Eduardo (Eddy) Almeida

“I was working a Correctional Officer when I became a member. You won’t find a union that’s got a bigger voice – and a bigger heart – than OPSEU/SEFPO.”
