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.

Sisters and Brothers,

National Public Service Week (NPSW) will be held June 11-17, 2017.  The event marks the importance of federal public service employees and to recognizes their service to Canadians.  Because the employer cannot pay its employees on time and accurately, we are asking our members to boycott NPSW.

PSAC members proudly serve Canadians on a daily basis.  Our members deserve more than a piece of cake - if the employer wants to show their recognition for our members' valuable work; they should do that by paying them in full and on time.

Sisters and Brothers,
 
Please find below a template letter that was sent to all 32 Liberal MPs in the Atlantic Region in regards to the Phoenix Pay System.
 
Feel free to use the same letter to contact your local MP.
 
In solidarity,
 
Jeannie Baldwin
Regional Executive Vice-President, Atlantic Region
Establishment of Asian Heritage Month

This is an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the long and diverse history of Asian Canadians and their contributions to Canada, as well as the many struggles they face.
