Directly Chartered Locals

The PSAC is comprised of 17 Components and Directly Chartered Locals (DCLs).  DCLs represent an organized group of members employed by private employers, municipal governments and the academic sector, just to name a few. 
This page is dedicated solely for DCLs.  You can download booklets and information sheets that will assist you in running an effective local.  We will also be posting updates in regards to bargaining, campaigns and other information related to DCLs.  After all, in the Atlantic Region, we have 18 DCLs:
New Brunswick:
Prince Edward Island:
Newfoundland and Labrador:
Nova Scotia:
In the event that the DCLs need an issue addressed at the National Board of Directors (NBoD), they do so via PSAC-Atlantic’s Regional Executive Vice-President (REVP).  On the regional level, they can contact their director that represent them at the PSAC-Atlantic Regional Council.  Those officers are elected at the PSAC-Atlantic Triennial Regional Convention that takes place every three years.
The current elected officials are:

On November 26-27, 18 PSAC members took part in the Directly Chartered Locals (DCLs) conference that was held in Moncton, NB.  The focus of the conference was to provide training on how to write and adopt resolutions at Conventions. Colleen Hodder, A/Regional Executive Vice-President of PSAC-Atlantic felt the enthusiasm in the room: “It was exciting to see the members write resolutions and debate them passionately.  We gave them all the tools necessary to play an active role at our upcoming Regional Convention and I’m sure they will come prepared.”
