Dear Sisters and Brothers, Although we need to celebrate the many achievements made towards equality, there remains a lot of work.  To this day, women are being denied equal pay for equal work and they are subject to discrimination and threats when they hold positions of power.  We can look in our own country where Alberta Premier Rachel Notley faces threats on a regular basis – because she’s a woman. Regardless of political affiliation, religious belief or even sexual orientation, women should be treated equally, period! Take action

Sisters and Brothers, Please find in attachment a letter I sent to the female MPs in our Region in regards to child care.  Our members are directly impacted by the high cost of child care and year after year, resolutions are adopted at our Conventions urging our Union to take concrete steps in working towards quality affordable child care system in Canada.

The annual International Women’s Day event of the PSAC that takes place in the Halifax Regional Municipality on March 8th, will not be held this year in March due to lack of a suitable and large enough space to hold the event.    However, keep your calendar open as we are planning to have a celebration of women’s achievements in October which is Women’s History Month in Canada.     More information will follow in the coming months.   In solidarity,   Janice Grant

This February, we celebrate Black History / African Heritage Month. The contributions made to society by our Brothers and Sisters from the Black/African communities have made our country a better place to live.  Not only have they shaped our nation, they have shaped our own Union as dedicated members and committed staff members. We honour all of those who contributed to PSAC’s success, such as Brother Cal Best. Our boardroom in the Halifax Regional Office is dedicated in his name to remind us every day of the important contribution made by our racially visible members.
