Prior to her election to CLC, Siobhán served four elected terms as Secretary-Treasurer of the Alberta Federation of Labour. She is a proud member of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), where she served as Secretary, Vice-President and President of IATSE Local 210.
Siobhán is a committed trade unionist who works tirelessly to defend the rights of workers in both the private and public sector. She is an advocate on occupational health and safety, women’s equality and the importance of workers’ voices at all levels of government and industry.
Guided by principles of collectivism and social justice, Siobhán worked on the AFL’s Join the Resistance campaign, pushing back against the cuts being implemented by Jason Kenney’s Conservative government in 2019.
In 2018, under Siobhán’s leadership, the AFL launched the Fair Start Campaign on early childhood education and care. She was also the driving force behind labour’s increased participation in Pride events in the province.
