Chair Report: 

This past year we had planned to participate in the Labour Day Picnic.  Which ended up being cancelled due to weather.  We had a couple of Rallies.  We stuffed envelopes for the Federal Election.  This coming year I would like to see more engagement to lobby MLAs and MPs.  I would like to see more rallies and more information getting out there regarding bargaining and Phoenix.  With everyone taking strike votes it is time to focus on helping Federal Bargaining units get fair Contracts.

Submitted by:  Michelle Lang/Charito Humphreys – Passed

New Business:

Bargaining:  Chris Gardner gave us an update on what is happening at federal Tables.  Chris was on the National Joint Strategy Committee.  Mobilization was on Tuesday.  TB consistent through out all the tables.  Delaying, Draw out of Mediation, worse offer than in September.  They say PSAC will not get a strike vote.   More to come, adhering to timelines.  Don’t need the PIC report to hand in Strike Vote.

Focus on MLA’s if we are going to Lobby as Provincial election is coming up.

Martha stated that there are three targeted locals.  USJE, CEIU, UHEW and they are going to keep Area Council in the loop. 

Unifor Lockout:  Charito asked if PSAC is supporting Unifor.  Michelle to reach out to Marianne about a possible release of support.
