Nicole's Story


Nicole Wiet
Elevator Operator
BC Tradeswomen Society

I’m a third-generation elevator mechanic in the International Union of Elevator Constructors Local 82. I started my career ten years ago with the support of both my father and grandfather.  I work both as a foreperson running large projects, as well as an adjuster at Otis Elevator.

I am the first woman elected to my local union’s executive board which is a position I respect and value greatly and it has helped me to facilitate the hiring of more women into our trade. I am also one of the founding board members of the BC Tradeswomen Society that supports both union and non-union tradeswomen.

I work hard to increase awareness of the barriers that tradeswomen face at work as well as solutions to the barriers.  I am so fortunate to be a part of the Governance Committee for the BCCWITT and I am excited to see all that the Centre is going to accomplish for tradeswomen.
