The 2019 Inter-Union Wet/Dry Corn Milling Council meetingOn October 13-18, 54th International Corn Council was held in Lincoln, Nebraska. Ingredion Canada, Plant Chief Steward, Jessica Potter from London was in attendance and was Canadas first female delegate to attend this conference since its inauguration.

Over the course of the week we were able to learn about the differences and similarities among other Ingredion facilities as well as competitors collective bargaining agreements. Strategies were also discussed about how to keep working conditions fair across this industry through collective bargaining.

Jessica has proudly served her members as the Plant Chief Steward for four years after serving as a shift steward for two. Jessica has always been an advocate of the Union, and helped to lead the employees in the last round of negotiations. Jessica is now looking forward to getting back to the bargaining table with her new-found information.
