Cindy Cossar-Jones, Professional Officer

About Cindy

As an alumnus of the University of Western Ontario I was quite excited when I became the Professional Officer for the Faculty Association in January 2010 after spending 19 years as an employee of the City of London. Whilst at the city, I held various positions within the Ontario Works division and within the union. In my last eight years with the city, I was the acting president and then President of Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 101, which represented approximately 1,100 unionized professionals across five bargaining units.

As UWOFA's Professional Officer, I use my years of union knowledge and experience to assist UWOFA members and to support the activities of various committees: Grievance, Joint Committee, Negotiations, Policy and Governance, Librarians & Archivists Stewards Committee, and the Faculty Representatives Council.
