Federal Government Employees Rally Asking the Government to Fix the Phoenix Pay System
MONCTON, NB – Members of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) employed by the Government of Canada will be rallying during National Public Service Week (NPSW) asking the government to fix the Phoenix Pay System.
The 53rd New Brunswick Federation of Labour (NBFL) convention was held in Moncton from May 28 to 31, 2017.
Although many N.B. PSAC locals are affiliated with the NBFL, only a delegation of only 9 PSAC members participated to this convention. If your local is not already affiliated, please contact your PSAC regional office for more details on the advantages to be affiliated.
Sisters and Brothers,
Please find below the Convention documents: Resolution, Convention Committees Reports, Convention Book, Finance Report as well the report from myself as your Regional Executive Vice-President. The books can also be found on our website.
I’m also excited to announce that we have an ‘App’ for our convention! You can download the app right away following the links below:

As your Director for GLBT members on the PSAC-Atlantic Regional Council, I will soon be joining many PSAC members across Canada and people around the world to recognize the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia.
On May 17, 1990, the World Health Assembly of the World Health Organization approved the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-10) which no longer listed homosexuality as a diagnosis.
To honour our Sisters and Brothers who have passed away, we have a tradition in which we hold a moment of silence during our Convention.
I invite you to send to my office the names of PSAC Atlantic region members who have passed away since our last Regional Convention in June 2014.
Please send those names and local affiliation to Sébastien Bezeau, Political Communications Officer (email@example.com) by Friday, June 2.
