Report of the Director for Francophone Members, Shanny Doucet, February 2013

The following is a summary of my activities for the afore mentioned period.

The Area Council met last October 11 to 14.

On November 3, the Women’s Committee of the New Brunswick Federation of Labour held its second annual Women in Leadership gala. PSAC was represented by a few women from New Brunswick. Jeannie Baldwin was there as a guest and addressed the attendees.

The Greater Moncton Regional Council held its annual general meeting on November 21. Elections were held, and I was elected president.

From November 29 to December 1, I attended the Leadership Summit in Ottawa. I took in the workshops on workforce adjustment, mental health, intimidation and harassment, and the rights and obligations of union officers.

On December 10, I was at an activity held by the Greater Moncton Human Rights Conference. They gave a presentation entitled Breaking the Silence, which the Area Council had an opportunity to see at Oak Island last October.

If you have any questions and/or comments, feel free to contact me.

Respectfully submitted,

Shanny Doucet
