As your Director for LGBTQ2+ members on the PSAC Atlantic Regional Council, I will soon be joining many PSAC members and allies across Canada and people around the world to recognize the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia. I would like to take this time to celebrate our diversity and bring attention to LGBTQ2+ rights as human rights.

On behalf of the Atlantic Regional Council and the Council’s Education Committee, I’m thrilled to announce that we are now accepting applications for the much anticipated 2018 PSAC Atlantic School! The Atlantic School brings together union activists from the four Atlantic Provinces with a foundation in union education to advance their skills in the company of the region’s most activated members.  The school’s in-residence program is tailored to deliver advanced courses in both official languages, while immersing participants in union culture.

PSAC’s Atlantic Region is in the process of developing a plan that will shape our Education Program for the next three years, and we would love your help.  We are conducting a short online survey open to all PSAC members, whether or not you have taken a PSAC training course.  The survey takes only 10 minutes and will help ensure that our members receive the courses you require in the format that best fits your needs.  Anyone who takes the survey will be entered into a draw to win a Union Gift Pack full of locally made goods and essentials for being a union activist.

Sisters and Brothers,   On April 28, the National Day of Mourning, we remember all those who have been killed or injured on the job.  In addition, this year we are focusing on harassment and violence in the workplace. Many area councils have already made arrangements to lay a wreath at their community event on behalf of our union. I encourage you all to attend an event near you.  There are various events organized in New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador. (See event listing below.)

Sisters and Brothers, This year, we encourage our members to participate in the events being organized around NPSW. We want our members to be recognized for the important work that they do for Canadians. Activities during National Public Service week are one small form of recognition. Of course, we also want our members' work recognized with correct and on time pay; better benefits and safe and decent working conditions.

The Liberal Party of Canada held its national convention in Halifax April 19 – 21. On April 20th, PSAC members delivered two flyers to the delegates. The first flyer was on the Phoenix Pay System which called on the Liberal Party to stop forcing workers who have mistakenly received overpayments, to pay back the gross amount. It also reminded the governing party of the basic principle that every worker should be getting paid correctly and on time, every time. The second flyer was on the need for a universal, high quality child care system in Canada.

The PSAC education team is preparing to revise the Talking Union Basics (TUB) course.  This course is often the first point of entry into PSAC union education.  If you are a graduate of this course, we would ask that you complete the following survey, which should take about 15 minutes. The information gathered will provide guidance for the revision of TUB.  Here is the survey.
