Thérèse Tremblay was born in Darlington and she is now living with her partner Jean-Yves in Dalhousie Junction, near her parents, her two children and her grandchildren.
Thérèse has worked 40 years in different sectors of employment in Restigouche County, including as administrative assistant in New Brunswick schools and libraries. Her twenty years involvement with unions and continued union education enabled her in 2010 to advance her career and become a Union Representative for the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE). She has retired on November 1st 2015.
Her career gives her a strong determination to represent the workers under the Labour Law Act. As a negotiator, mediator, and defender of worker’s rights Therese is well qualified to stand up for issues that concern citizens on the North Shore of New Brunswick.
Thérèse has an impressive history as a volunteer, including as a girl guide leader, a biblical teacher for children, and as a board member of the Restigouche District Labour Council (RDLC). As President, she sat on the New Brunswick Federation of Labour Executive Council. Therese is a volunteer with the SPCA bookstore since she is retired.
Be fair are the words that define her. Her passion is for justice and equality.
Therese is part of change for the better for women, workers and families. With courage and determination, we can make it happen. It’s time!
Together, we can make a difference for our communities!
