Email: hladunm@psac.com

Marianne Hladun was elected Prairies Regional Executive Vice-President (REVP) at the 6th Regional Triennial Convention of the PSAC Prairie Region on June 29, 2014 in Saskatoon.

She previously served for two years as REVP after Robyn Benson, former Prairies REVP, was elected PSAC National President at the PSAC 16th National Triennial Convention on May 4, 2012 in Ottawa.

An active PSAC member for over 20 years, Hladun’s comprehensive union experience spans various positions, committees and bargaining teams.

She held the position of National Human Rights Director for Agriculture Union for nine years, and Regional Vice-President of North Saskatchewan for Agriculture Union for one year, before assuming the position of Prairies REVP.

Prior to that she was elected as the North Saskatchewan Geographical Representative on the Prairie Region Council (PRC) in 1999, a position she held until being elected Alternate REVP on the PRC in 2008, and again in 2011.

Hladun was a member of the National CFIA bargaining team for six years. As REVP she is responsible for 26 regional bargaining units. As part of her Alliance Executive Committee (AEC) portfolio assignments, she is responsible for Parks Canada and Royal Canadian Mint bargaining. She also shares responsibility for the Education and Young Workers' Initiative AEC portfolios with Ontario REVP Sharon DeSousa.

Earlier in her union career, she held various positions within her Local, including Steward, Chief Steward, Vice-President and President of Agriculture Union Local 40022.

As a certified PSAC Alliance Facilitator, Hladun has developed and delivered courses to PSAC, CLC, and SFL, among others. She is a graduate of the PSAC Union Development Program, the CLC Labour College of Canada, and holds a diploma in Labour Studies from the University of Saskatchewan.

Though she has been a staunch PSAC activist for years, she has also dedicated herself to the broader labour movement, holding the position of PSAC Vice-President to the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour (SFL) for 10 years. During this time, she sat on several SFL Committees including Education, Collective Bargaining/Labour Legislation, and Political Strategy—a committee she chaired for four years.

She has also committed herself to community and social justice causes. In 2013, she worked closely with the Saskatchewan Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (SADAO) and other community groups to lobby the Saskatchewan provincial government to implement a mandatory registry of buildings containing asbestos. Their combined efforts resulted in a historic, precedent-setting win.

In 2006, the Saskatoon & District Labour Council (SDLC) appointed Hladun the Labour Representative on the United Way of Saskatoon and Area’s National Board of Directors for two consecutive terms. In 2003, United Way of Saskatoon and Area and the SDLC presented Hladun with the Labour Community Service Award.

As a board member and volunteer for NASHI, a registered charity that aims to divert at risk youth from human trafficking, she has participated in four humanitarian missions to Ukraine.

Hladun has worked for the federal government since 1986 in several departments and agencies, including Correctional Services of Canada, Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration (PFRA) and, until assuming the role of Prairies REVP, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency as a food inspector. 

She was born and raised in Canora, Saskatchewan and later lived in Saskatoon for 27 years. Though she now calls Winnipeg home, she will always be a Saskatchewan Roughriders fan at heart.
