Thank you for the support NPAQ. I have been a nurse and union member for over 20 years and have never had such support. The response to my request for representation was great. Right from the beginning, Ben was supportive. He called me multiple times and emailed me relevant information and called after the meeting I had to attend. He ensured I was okay and needed anything, offered to go through mock scenarios if I needed too, and did everything he could to alleviate my anxiety. My meeting went smoothly with a good outcome. Thank you're a legend!

I was feeling vulnerable but at each step Emilie was there when I made contact with her. Prior to the meeting she was very reassuring and supportive. I definitely was not my normal self and her reassurances, kindness and professionalism were outstanding. The notes on what to do and what not to do we’re an excellent guideline. In closing I have found the support of all involved in NPAQ kind and appropriately reassuring. Many thanks

I would like to express my deep gratitude to Tracy Tully for the support she has given me during a difficult and sensitive experience. The non-judgemental, professional, emotional support and guidance was more than I expected. Tracy went above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks to Tracy I received a great outcome and feel I can move forward in my career with greater confidence and knowledge. It is wonderful to have the knowledge as a professional that I am supported and cared for by NPAQ. Thank you so very much.
