Updates

As your Director for GLBT members on the PSAC-Atlantic Regional Council, I will soon be joining many PSAC members across Canada and people around the world to recognize the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia.

On May 17, 1990, the World Health Assembly of the World Health Organization approved the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-10) which no longer listed homosexuality as a diagnosis.

To honour our Sisters and Brothers who have passed away, we have a tradition in which we hold a moment of silence during our Convention. 
 
I invite you to send to my office the names of PSAC Atlantic region members who have passed away since our last Regional Convention in June 2014.
 
Please send those names and local affiliation to Sébastien Bezeau, Political Communications Officer (bezeaus@psac-afpc.com) by Friday, June 2.
 
Thank you.

Union Celebrates Legal Victory Against the University of New Brunswick

HALIFAX, NS – The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) is celebrating a legal victory following a decision rendered by Justice Paulette C. Garnett on April 7, 2017 in the Court of Queen’s Bench of New Brunswick between the University of New Brunswick and PSAC.

Sisters and Brothers,

On May 9, 1992, an explosion at the Westray Mine in Pictou County, Nova Scotia killed 26 miners working underground.  It was one of the deadliest mining disasters in Canadian history and led to new Criminal Code provisions – known as the Westray Law – that made it possible to prosecute corporate criminal negligence.

You can find below information in regards to the event taking place on May 9 at the Westray Miners Memorial Park.
