The Anti-Racism/Human Rights Committee of the Nova Scotia Federation of Labour organized a Solidarity Luncheon on March 21st to celebrate the United Nations International Day to Eliminate Racism. Our very own Brother Wayne Kelley is a member of the committee and the keynote speaker of the event was none other than Brother Neville David, PSAC-Atlantic’s Director for Racially Visible members.
In 1966, the United Nations proclaimed March 21st as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
While there has been some progress with respect to racial justice, racism persists in Canadian society, there has also been some erosion of human rights over the past decade.
Members of the Halifax Regional Women's Committee celebrated International Women's Day at a sold out breakfast sponsored by the Nova Scotia Federation of Labour Women's Committee on Wednesday, March 8th.
Rhonda Doyle LeBlanc, who is also the Maritime Director for Women, received the Sister of the Year Award. Guest speaker for the breakfast was Becky Kent former NDP, MLA and now the Provincial Coordinator for the Transition House Association of Nova Scotia. Also joining in the celebration was Danny Cavanagh, President of the Federation of Labour.

PSAC-Atlantic Regional Council
The members of the Atlantic Regional Council are elected geographically (NS, NB, NL, PE) and/or by constituency (Equity Group, non-Treasury Board, etc.) at PSAC-Atlantic’s Triennial Convention. All Council members are assigned to work with Committees of the Council. It is in the balance of these two functions that Council members define their roles and responsibilities.
