Colleen Coffey was elected Atlantic Regional Executive Vice-President at the 7th Regional Triennial Convention on June 24, 2017 in Saint John, NB.

An active PSAC member for over 20 years, Sister Coffey first began her union activism with the Goose Bay Women’s Committee and entered into a long pay equity battle.  She was workforce adjusted in 1998 and moved to the Airforce Base in Greenwood, NS.  After re-establishing herself and her family, she got involved in her union local and held many roles from Secretary, Treasurer, Shop Steward, Chief Shop Steward and finally President for the past 12 years. 

She held a seat on the PSAC Atlantic Council for three terms and was elected the Alternate REVP for those terms. 

Sister Coffey was elected to be the female PSAC Representative on the Nova Scotia Federation of Labour Executive Council and held this seat for several terms until she was elected the Female Vice President at Large that she maintained for two terms.

People who work in the federal public service always have one eye trained on what’s going on at Canada Post.  And for good reason.  The crown corporation is a testing ground for the federal government’s experiments on how to transform working conditions and labour relations.

We are approaching the end of what has been both a successful and challenging year for our union.  I want to congratulate all 20,000 PSAC members in the Atlantic for your courage, your activism and your resilience.   And here’s why.2013 saw continued efforts by the federal government to single out the public sector by cutting jobs and slashing services that the Canadian public relies on.  And we all know, it didn’t stop there.  The first Budget of 2013 contained clear signs of attacks to come, in particular on sick leave, compensation and union security.

Leave it to Stephen Harper’s Conservatives to try to pile in as much bad legislation as they can in the two years they have left in office.

The latest budget implementation act (Bill C-4) now being debated by Parliament will drastically change and reduce health & safety protections for workers in federal jurisdiction. The proposed changes to the Canada Labour Code put workers’ lives at risk.
