Sisters and Brothers,   On April 28, the National Day of Mourning, we remember all those who have been killed or injured on the job.  In addition, this year we are focusing on harassment and violence in the workplace. Many area councils have already made arrangements to lay a wreath at their community event on behalf of our union. I encourage you all to attend an event near you.  There are various events organized in New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador. (See event listing below.)

We want our members to be recognized for the important work that they do for Canadians. Activities during National Public Service week are one small form of recognition. Of course, we also want our members' work recognized with correct and on time pay; better benefits and safe and decent working conditions.

The Liberal Party of Canada held its national convention in Halifax April 19 – 21. On April 20th, PSAC members delivered two flyers to the delegates. The first flyer was on the Phoenix Pay System which called on the Liberal Party to stop forcing workers who have mistakenly received overpayments, to pay back the gross amount. It also reminded the governing party of the basic principle that every worker should be getting paid correctly and on time, every time. The second flyer was on the need for a universal, high quality child care system in Canada.
