At its regular meeting on April 9th, 2015, the NBTF Board of Directors ratified the NBTF Executive Committee’s decision to hire Nicole LeBlanc as Labour Relations Officer with the NBTF.
Nicole has over 16 years of experience within the New Brunswick public school system. For the last eleven years, she has held the position of SPR at l’École Odyssée in Moncton, in school district Francophone Sud, where she also teaches French.
Nicole is described as having a high level of professionalism, maturity and loyalty. As a past grievance officer, she has attended numerous meetings with the employer on issues related to teachers’ working conditions. Nicole is also a member of the NBTF Provincial Grievance Committee.
Nicole is from Cercle 13M and is a member of AEFNB’s and NBTF’s Board of Directors. Her excellent communication skills, in both French and English, will certainly be an asset to the NBTF.
This position became available as the result of Kerry Leopkey’s appointment to the position of Executive Director. Ms. LeBlanc will begin her employment shortly and will be responsible for files originating from SDA-N, DSF-NE and DSF-S.
The Board of Directors welcomes Nicole and wishes her well as she embarks into this new career.
