Jacob Alan Berthelot – Region 3 – Regional Recording Secretary
My Name is Jake Berthelot and I am running for region 3 Recording Secretary. I started my career with BCEHS in 2019 as a part-time call taker and have since taken a full-time dispatch position in Kamloops Dispatch. I work on team 1 and I am still pursuing opportunities to learn and grow through this career.
Before my career with BCEHS, I was employed with BC Liquor where I held one of the BCGEU’s local vice president roles. This set a great foundation for my understanding of many roles and responsibilities the union officers such as having a strong understanding of the collective agreement, members and employer rights, the grievance process, Etc. Shortly after accepting employment with BCEHS, I stepped up to fill a vacant shop steward role in dispatch and in 2022 I took on the role as interim RVP, which has accelerated my learning and made me appreciate the many aspects that come along with the role. With the member returning to their RVP role, I am looking to continue to apply my knowledge to benefit and support our membership.
I hope I have your support as my previous experience and my desire to continue to learn and grow would make me an asset in this position. Thank you for your consideration. If you have any questions, please reach out to me.
