To our friends at CUPE NB:

We are sending this letter of support to remind you that you are not alone in your fight for free collective bargaining and a fair contract. The Public Service Alliance of Canada’s Atlantic Region represents over 22,000 members and you can count on our support.

We have already been active on social media in denouncing the tactics used by the provincial government with the way they are ‘bargaining’. It’s simply disgusting that they would use public funds to attack its own employees.

We know how difficult it can be to deal with an employer that is also a government. It’s not easy but your resilience and dedication will not only pay off for your members, but it will also benefit all workers and New Brunswick citizens.

If there’s anything specific we can do to assist, please do not hesitate to ask. In the meantime, we will continue to amplify your messages using all our communication tools. Your fight is also our fight.

In solidarity always,
