The New Brunswick Federation of Labour is hosting a meeting of all the public sector unions to discuss issues of common concern as it applies to collective bargaining and labour relations in the province. Unions in attendance represent over 62,000 New Brunswick public sector workers.

“This is a landmark moment. The last time that all public sector unions came together for such collaborative work was fifteen years ago,” says Daniel Legere, President of the New Brunswick Federation of Labour. “If ever there was a time that public sector unions needed to come together, it is now. We are facing unprecedented attacks against the collective bargaining process.”

In attendance at the October 16th meeting are the following labour unions:

• Canadian Union of Public Employees
• New Brunswick Nurses Union
• Public Service Alliance of Canada
• The New Brunswick Union of Public and Private Employees
• New Brunswick Teachers’ Federation
• The Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada

The New Brunswick Federation Labour is largest central labour body in the province of New Brunswick. It represents 35,000 unionized workers in both the public and private sectors.
