In 2014,Nestor became indeterminate at Stony Mountain Institution and signed his PSAC/USJE card. He is employed as a Food Steward Officer in Food Services and has also obtained his red seal (1991).
Nestor has been a Shop Steward and OSH committee member for 3 years. Nestor is also a member of the Winnipeg Area Council.
Nestor was elected to represent the SV – Prairies from USJE to the National Bargaining Conference, in Edmonton, November 2017. In March 2018, Nestor was elected to represent the SV – Prairies and PSAC on the National Bargaining Team, in Ottawa.
Some of Nestor’s spare time involves attending rallies, demonstration, picket-line support, protests and union sponsored parades.
