Episode 29: Meet UTL495's Nancy Giblin

Episode 29: Meet UTL495's Nancy Giblin

As a union local, we have many people working on our members’ behalf. When a member reaches out to our local, one of first people you most likely will speak with is Office Manager, Nancy Giblin. Nancy, as you will learn, has been with our UTL495 office since 1992. That means Nancy has invaluable background and knowledge of how things work, who to contact, and can often point members with questions to the answers they are looking for.

Nancy is calm, courteous and always on top of Member requests returning phone calls and making sure that Member messages and enquiries are responded to as promptly as possible.

It is our great pleasure to introduce Members who may not have met her yet, to Nancy. She is at the heart of our union! Nancy Giblin is one of the main reasons that United Teachers of Lowell is UNION STRONG.
