Over the course of a summer where public services are even more threatened by the federal government, the Halifax office of PSAC was working hard to bring together its members and educate the public on the important work being done by the public sector.The summer kicked off when the PSAC brought its Save Our Farms campaign to a garden fair hosted by Halifax MP Megan Leslie. Attendees were very supportive, and surprised to learn that such an amazing program was on the chopping block. Well over a hundred people signed the petition to save the prison farm program.

PSAC members from all across downtown Sydney came out to join us for a workplace barbecue on Monday, August 9th. Sydney's own Rangelight Cafe provided hamburgers and hotdogs to 250 people in the Dorchester street courtyard, located right next to Sydney's government offices. Members attended from Service Canada, the Canadian Revenue Agency, Correctional Services and Veterans Affairs. The next two winners of our Gifts With A Twist prize baskets were CEIU members Claudette Macdonald and Jana (no last name given.) Congratulations!

On Tuesday, August 3rd, PSAC held a BBQ at the Service Canada Building in Harbour Grace.  Twenty-three dollars was collected for the Breast Cancer Foundation.  It was a slower BBQ than usual due to its being cancelled because of the inclement weather the week before but overall, this Tuesday was a beautiful day and it was great to meet with our PSAC members in Harbour Grace.

Natal Day is the annual birthday celebration of the communities of Halifax and Dartmouth. PSAC took our defending quality public services message out in the fresh air at this year’s Natal Day Parade. Members paraded in style in an antique fire engine. Our message?  Public services are the tools we have collectively given ourselves to achieve our common ideal – a fair, equitable, safe and prosperous society respectful of the environment where no one is left out. Think public!

In the spring of 2010, CEIU took action against the loss of 147 term and casual jobs at the CIC processing centre in Sydney, Nova Scotia. At the local, regional and national levels, CEIU pushed back to save jobs and maintain quality public services. This work has paid off: CIC Sydney will be hiring up to approximately 160 term staff to address the centre’s backlogs at CIC Sydney’s Case Processing Centre, Permanent Resident Card Centre and the Federal Skilled Workers Project.
