Let the chips expire on the shelves   Like many people, I’m appalled by the lack of respect demonstrated by Mr. Ryan Albright towards his employees.  By saying that he would offer his employees what they are looking for, but never in a union environment, Mr. Albright is acting like a bully and bargaining in bad faith.  Bullying is unacceptable, whatever form it takes and regardless in which situation it is present.

On National Public Service Week, we thank our public servants for the incredible work they do building and preserving the things we value in this country. From coast to coast to coast, public servants are there: supporting veterans, conducting safety inspections on everything from food to infrastructure, conserving parks and wildlife, protecting natural resources and providing public services to those in need.

June 21 is National Aboriginal Day, a day to recognize and celebrate First Nations, Inuit and Métis people in Canada.  On this day we have many reasons to celebrate and also many reasons to fight. The Atlantic Region of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) supports all Aboriginal Peoples in their struggle for full access to all human rights and fundamental freedoms. We strongly believe that those freedoms include the right to preserve and strengthen their own political, economic, legal and cultural traditions and institutions.
