Members of the PSAC Saint John and Vicinity Area Council and the Greater Moncton Area Council participated in the Labour Day event in Saint John and Moncton with other Unions.

Members of the PSAC Greater Moncton Human Rights committee along with the National Indigenous People Circle Male Representative and Atlantic Region Aboriginal Director on the PSAC Atlantic Regional Council, Joey Dunphy were present at the Moncton Farmer’s Market on July 6th, 2019 to bring awareness to the general public on the issue of safe drinking water for First Nation communities in Canada.  There are still 125 Aboriginal communities that are currently under boil-water advisories. Some have been for years. 

PSAC MEMBERS from various locals and regional committees from Fredericton, Saint John and Moncton participated in their respective PRIDE events in New Brunswick.

Saint John, August 30, 2019 – The members of the Union of Canadian Transportation Employees (UCTE), a component of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) working at Saint John Airport, voted last night in favour of a strike mandate.

“The members have given their bargaining team a strong strike mandate, by a large majority. Our members are prepared to fight for what they want, so the table is set for the last day of mediation on September 5,” said Colleen Coffey, Regional Executive Vice-President of PSAC-Atlantic.

This coming Monday is a holiday when all workers are invited to celebrate the power of their labour. On this day, we have an opportunity to participate in several events marking Labour Day or simply spend time with family and friends.

I am proud to advocate for a union that strives to improve working and living conditions for all Canadians. On this day, may we remember the battles we fought and be mindful of the struggles still ahead to achieve fairer working conditions.
