On Thursday October 25, 2012, members of the NDP caucus will be wearing a purple ribbon in solidarity with public sector workers affected by the recent cuts to jobs and public services.  This initiative originated with a PSAC member, and I am encouraging our members from coast to coast to coast to join in and wear a purple ribbon to demonstrate that we are all affected by the cuts, and we oppose them.

The following text is from an article featured on the VOCM website:The Public Service Alliance of Canada says it is willing to go back to the table at any time to resolve a labour dispute at St. John's International Airport.  Yesterday the Airport Authority accused the union of not being willing to negotiate, and of making reckless statements.  Union spokesperson Chris Bussey says they're willing to sit down with the Airport Authority at any time.

Spirits were high as Chris Aylward, PSAC National Vice-President, marched alongside the members through St. John's Airport.  They visited the corporate offices, but unfortunately the management team was not in! Jeannie Baldwin, Regional Executive Vice-President Atlantic, sent a message to the employer that "we bargain on our feet and not on our knees".  Lana Payne was proud to stand in solidarity with an announcement that the NL Federation of Labour will be cancelling their upcoming Convention due to the airport strike.
