Sisters and Brothers,
Please find in attachment a letter I sent to the female MPs in our Region in regards to child care.

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.

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.

I have personally sent a letter to every MP in our Region in regards to Bill C-27. I strongly encourage you to send our template letter to Bill Morneau, the Minister of Finance, telling him that Bill C-27, an Act to amend the Pension Benefits Standards Act, is an attack on the retirement security of workers.
