Sisters and Brothers,

I have personally sent a letter to every MP in our Region in regards to Bill C-27.  I strongly encourage you to send our template letter to Bill Morneau, the Minister of Finance, telling him that Bill C-27, an Act to amend the Pension Benefits Standards Act, is an attack on the retirement security of workers. 

The NS AREA Council1 supported HTU on the anniversary of a full year on the picket line by walking with them and then were delighted to have Br Steven Forest give us a presentation on the past year and the future of the paper and local. The Area Council president, Br Chris DiLiberatore then presented Steven with a $200 cheque towards the strike fund.

The Atlantic Region of the Public Service Alliance of Canada and our 18,000 members across the region hereby request that you immediately appoint an Industrial Inquiry Commission under section 73 of the Trade Union Act. As evidenced by this year-long strike, the owners of the Chronicle Herald and their workers need balance in trying to reach a tentative agreement.

Monday, January 23rd marks the one-year anniversary of Chronicle Herald strike. The NSFL continues our boycott of the paper; we will not advertise, submit press releases, or give interviews to the Herald until the strike is over.
 
In the meantime, we’re reading Local XPress, the online news service started by the Halifax Typographical Union (HTU).
