Approximately 40 members attended the Pension information session in Summerside. Jeannie Baldwin, REVP – Atlantic, gave a very spirited and informative talk on events leading up to our concerns over protecting Federal Public Sector pensions.
- Bill C10 that broke the PSAC/CRA collective agreement
- cuts to status of women
- the attack on pay equity that fines PSAC 50,000 if we assist a member with a pay equity complaint, and
- recent news that workers jobs will be cut in the Human Rights office in Halifax.
Jeannie’s presentation was followed by good questions and a commitment to continue this fight after the budget is introduced.
