My name is  Vira Kozlowsky, and I'm a candidate for the position of Treasurer on your Local 596 Executive.

       I've been at Ryerson for over 20  years and worked in several different areas of the University.  My current position for the last 15 years is in  CCS as a Coordinator in  Academic Services with  responsibility for software license renewals and lab bookings for the CCS Academic Computing labs.  I've been a 596 steward for over 10  years and my contributions to our Local include my activities on our Social Committee for several years, my participation at OPSEU Conventions as a delegate, as well as being a delegate at the BPS (Broader Public Service) convention where we elected our current Region 5 Executive Board Members.  I've increased my Union skills at weekend OPSEU Educationals and I would be honoured to be allowed my skills and experience to further the goals and standards set by our current Local 596 Executive.  I would ask that you consider me as  your next Treasurer.  I would be happy to answer  questions you may have of me either before our GMM on the 6th of May via email  to  or on the floor at our GMM.
