Directly Chartered Locals

The PSAC is comprised of 15 Components and Directly Chartered Locals (DCLs). DCLs represent members employed by private employers, municipal governments and the academic sector, just to name a few. 
This page is dedicated to DCLs.  You can download booklets and information sheets that will help you run an effective local.  We will also be posting updates on bargaining, campaigns and other information related to DCLs.  After all, in the Atlantic Region, we have 18 DCLs:
New Brunswick:
Prince Edward Island:
Newfoundland and Labrador:
Nova Scotia:
In the event that the DCLs need an issue addressed at the National Board of Directors (NBoD), they do so via PSAC-Atlantic’s Regional Executive Vice-President (REVP).  On the regional level, they can contact their director that represent them at the PSAC-Atlantic Regional Council.  Those officers are elected at the PSAC-Atlantic Triennial Regional Convention that takes place every three years.
The current elected officials are:

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, Please find below tentative dates for our regional conferences. Let me tell you that it was an almost impossible task to select dates that weren’t going to create a conflict with other events within PSAC and its Components and DCLs. In addition to that, I also had to consult Erin Sirett, Regional Coordinator, to discuss the staffing aspect of these conferences.
