WOMEN’S ADVOCATE
Mary-Lynn Chittick
M: 902.219.3866

I am pleased to represent Unifor members as the newest Women’s Advocate.  I come from strong background of both lived experience and education which I feel will assist me in supporting the members.  My role is to support and refer members to services in the community that will help them through various situations.

Referrals can include but are not limited to sexual assault, intimate partner violence, all other forms of abuse, anger management, attempted suicide, depression, pregnancy, separation, divorce, counseling, stalking, and mental illness.

I’d like to reassure all members that your privacy, confidentiality will be maintained as it’s what this office represents and it is a negotiated contractual right. I will work with members to the level of support that you need.

It is very difficult to concentrate on your job when you experience issues at home. The Company and the Union both realized this, which is why the Women’s Advocate position was created and most recently by negotiating paid domestic violence leave for our members.

My door as a Women’s Advocate is always open to all members; I presently work in the Kentville Assignment Centre, and I can be reached at (902)219-2866. If a call goes to voicemail I will get back to you as soon as possible. Every call is important to me.

Mary-Lynn Chittick
