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.

The PSAC education team is preparing to revise the Talking Union Basics (TUB) course.  This course is often the first point of entry into PSAC union education.  If you are a graduate of this course, we would ask that you complete the following survey, which should take about 15 minutes. The information gathered will provide guidance for the revision of TUB.  Here is the survey.

April 29

Prior to the Convention officially opening, the regions held their regional caucuses. 

Colleen Coffey, Regional Executive Vice-President (REVP) for the Atlantic Region chaired the Caucus and introduced members of the Atlantic Regional Council in attendance.

Sisters and Brothers,

This week is National Volunteer Week and I wanted to take a brief moment to recognize and thank all of you who dedicate your time for our union.  Our members give so much without expecting anything in return.  We work together to improve working conditions for all workers in society and we take on causes that our near and dear to our hearts.  We obtain many victories and accomplishments because of the work we do together.

Thank you for dedicating so much of your time and efforts to our union.

In solidarity,
