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.

The Federal Budget released by the Harper Government has set a clear direction for balancing the budget within the next five years by targeting the federal public service through austerity measures. The budget freezes federal departmental spending with the goal of reducing the debt on the backs of public service workers.

On January 15, 2010, the Occupational Health and Safety Administrative Penalties Regulations (N.S. Reg. 291/2009) became law. The Regulations give the Department of Labour and Workforce Development’s Occupational Health and Safety (“OHS”) division the ability to issue penalties when violations of health and safety laws are found in workplaces.

Speculation about what will be in the March 4 federal budget is rampant in the media. Some reports would lead us to believe that the Harper Conservatives will leave the federal pension plans alone.So far, nothing PSAC has heard from Treasury Board President Stockwell Day would lead us to believe that we won’t have to continue to fight to protect the pension benefits our members in the federal public sector pay for.
