THE POWER OF ONE / Want to Spring into Action for Child Care? The Power of One is a simple action, have one conversation – with a family member, a co-worker, a grandparent – about child care and the upcoming federal election. Ask them to carry the conversation forward with one other person. Finding affordable quality child care is often a silent struggle, let’s break the silence. Make sure to share your stories with us on Facebook and Twitter @votechildcare / #VoteChildCare2015/  #Votezgarderies2015 

Dear Editor,

National Public Service Week (NPSW) will be held June 14 to 20, 2015.  Once again we are boycotting any participation.  We are asking that you do not take any role in the employer’s organizing committees as the employer may be approaching you shortly.  We encourage you to take part in an activity being organized by PSAC or your local.

“In the current climate of distrust, considering the ongoing assaults coming from the government of Canada and upcoming contract negotiations for thousands of our members, the relevance of such activities is non-existent.”
