Regional Council

The members of the Atlantic Regional Council are elected geographically (NS, NB, NL, PE) and/or by constituency (Equity Group, non-TB, etc).  All Council members are assigned to work with Committees of the Council.  It is in the balance of these two functions that Council members define their roles and responsibilities.

The primary purpose of Council is to represent to the REVP the needs of membership in the Atlantic.  Council joins the REVP in providing leadership within their regions and/or constituencies and Committees.

Council works collaboratively as requested by the REVP in providing leadership on PSAC and other Labour or social justice campaigns and to mobilize the membership in support of Collective Bargaining.  The REVP and Council recognize and appreciate the role of staff in delivery of these and other functions.  Working together we have a positive and energetic approach to leadership.

Coming out is the process of personally accepting your homosexuality and disclosing it to family, co-workers and friends. Coming out is different for every gay or bisexual person. Some experience a lot of pain and anguish while for others acceptance is a joyous time. It's perfectly normal to experience fear, doubt, loneliness, anger and even depression.
