OPSEU Local 5110
After the vote was taken to join OPSEU, Valerie Daughton became the first president of OPSEU Local 5110 from 2005-2011.
From there, the Local was able to form various committees which Daughton became a part of, such as the Benefits and Pension Committee, (EAP) Employee Assistance Program Committee as well as becoming an OPSEU Mobilizer.
The Local has been growing ever since.
