Kingston paramedic Jenn Mizerovsky re-elected to CUPE Ontario executive

WINDSOR, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 26, 2012) - Members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Ontario this week re-elected Kingston paramedic Jenn Mizerovsky to the union's executive board.

Mizerovsky was elected at the CUPE Ontario Convention in Windsor, Ontario, which was attended by more than 1100 members and staff from across the province.

"I'm grateful that CUPE members chose to return me to the board for another term. I will do my best to stand up for all workers and for the public services all our communities rely on every day," she said. "And I'm really excited that I will be able to continue working to raise the profile of paramedics across the province. Paramedics work long, hard, dangerous hours and our work is too often undervalued and overlooked."

Mizerovsky, mother of a 14-year-old daughter, has worked as a paramedic since 2004 and in January was elected as the first female President of CUPE Local 1842, which represents paramedics in Hastings and Prince Edward counties. An active member of her community, she volunteers coaching high school athletics and volunteered as a medic for the Arctic Games in Nunavut.

CUPE Ontario is the province's largest union. It represents more than 230,000 workers in five main sectors: health care, school boards, municipalities, social services and universities.
