International Women’s Day Luncheon


St. John’s, NL –  The Public Service Alliance of Canada’s St. John’s Regional Women’s Committee is sponsoring a luncheon with the theme: ‘Inspiring Change’.  Keynote speaker will be PSAC’s National President, Robyn Benson.


For IWD 2014, PSAC is calling on the federal government to stop the attacks on women’s rights to full employment and decent work.


But despite the attacks, we also have something to celebrate: the strength and courage of PSAC sisters have resulted in many victories over the last 35 years.  In the past year, we won pay equity for our sisters working at Canada Post, and we forced the employer to accommodate the child care needs of parents at the Canada Border Services Agency.



WHEN: 12:00 p.m. to 2 p.m., Friday, March 7, 2014

WHERE: Royal Canadian Legion, Top Floor

Pleasantville, St. John’s, NL
