    Updated 1 month ago
    Gayle Smith was a public servant and CPSU member who was deeply committed to health and safety and she understood the importance of being a workers’ representative, whether as a workplace delegate or a health and safety representative. Sadly Gayle passed away a number of years ago after a battle with cancer. To honour Gayle’s life, and to encourage other CPSU members to further their involvement in health and safety and worker representation, CPSU is proud to sponsor an award in her name.
