Maria Dorsey

My name is Maria Dorsey, a proud Ryerson employee for 12 years, and I love this place! Early in my time here, I discovered a passion for union work and signed on as a union steward 10 years ago. I have served three different faculties: FCAD,  Engineering, TRSM and University Advancement. This gives me a wide perspective on the different areas of the university. 

I've worked in Business Management for the past 7 years. As a union steward for Business Management, I have worked on members issues, including a two member team that raised the Grade by one point for department administrators after a major PDQ re-analysis.

In my capacity as a union steward I have dealt with many conflicts between managers and members. I was also elected as an alternate during the recent round of OPSEU contract negotiations.

Why should you vote for me? I am open, honest, and fair. I am a hard worker and a good listener, and I am not afraid to stand up for what is right. I ask for your support and your vote as your Unit 1 elected representative.
