About Us

Beth Couchman


I’m Beth Couchman, President of Unifor Local 5555 at McMaster University.  I have been working for the Union for nine years and have truly found my passion in helping people.  I began at McMaster University in the Campus Store working with the students and faculty and enjoyed the positive energy that students bring to the campus.


My Local has been involved in CPWO (formerly COUSA) for many years which provided opportunity for me to attend the conferences throughout my time working in the union. A new executive of CPWO was voted into office Spring 2017 and I became Vice-President at that time. At the most recent conference I was acclaimed as Vice-President for a three year term.  I look forward to working with the current executive, re-branding our organization and watching it grow. The knowledge gained from the delegates will be amazing!
