Our hearts break today in learning of the horrifying murders in New Zealand.  On behalf of PSAC members in the Atlantic Region, I would like to extend our solidarity to Muslim communities everywhere, especially in Christchurch.  But our rage also grows today and so does our determination to confront, call out, dismantle and disempower white supremacy.  Unions everywhere must be leaders in this urgent fight.  We encourage members to attend vigils in your communities and to offer support where you can.

This International Women’s Day, workers and women are calling on all federal political parties to commit to a plan for affordable, high-quality child care ahead of the federal election. It has been nearly 50 years since the report of the Royal Commission on the Status of Women called for a universal child care program to help achieve economic equality for women. In 2019, women and workers need every party to be a #ChildCareChampion Tell all party leaders that we need a #ChildCareChampion!

Sisters, Brothers and Friends, Please find below tentative dates for our regional conferences. Let me tell you that it was an almost impossible task to select dates that weren’t going to create a conflict with other events within PSAC and its Components and DCLs. In addition to that, I also had to consult Erin Sirett, Regional Coordinator, to discuss the staffing aspect of these conferences.
