Colleen Coffey, Regional Executive Vice-President, Atlantic

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.

National Public Service Week (NPSW) was created in 1992 to recognize the value of the services rendered by federal public service employees and to acknowledge the contribution of federal public service employees to the federal administration.  While public service workers are still not getting paid correctly, they still show up to work every day to deliver quality public services to Canadians. How will this government recognize its workers during the week of June 10-16 when it can’t even pay them correctly?
