Despite all the magic of social media, letters still pack a serious punch.   A letter to the editor, to an MP, to your municipal councilor can make important inroads.  PSAC members know more than almost anyone about the public services we provide, and we are best equipped to speak up and write up when these services are under attack.

Let’s see if we got this right: there’s a global pandemic and various levels of government are urging the population to stay at home and whereas possible, to work from home in order to flatten the curve and protect our economy as much as possible. Thousands of public sector workers continue to show up to their workplace and some adapt and work from home as they are deemed essential service. Thousands more volunteer to transfer to a new position in order to deliver essential benefits created by the federal government.

May 14, 2020   RE: Support for women who work in transition houses   Premier McNeil,   We applaud the federal government’s announcement to cost share wage tops-ups for critical front-line workers in the province. The challenge will be in ensuring that every front-line worker receives this well-deserved raise. All front-line workers are placing their own health and safety at risk in order to protect ours and that needs to be recognized.

Sisters, Brothers and Friends, As I sit down to write this letter to you, PSAC members, I can’t help but feel grateful for all that you do on a daily basis. I’m proud to say that I work for PSAC members just as you are proud to work for Canadians.

As many of you may know, there is a possibility of a strike by roughly 4100 workers at 46 New Brunswick nursing homes. I am writing to ask that you support these workers in their fight for fair and respectful working conditions.  On March 7, 90% of workers voted in favour of strike action, rejecting an offer from the New Brunswick government that would keep them overworked and underpaid.  On Sunday, the Government of New Brunswick obtained a court order suspending their right to strike for 10 days and undermining these workers’ labour rights.
