Media Advisory - PSAC members pounding the pavement for a better deal

    MONCTON, NB, June 18 /CNW Telbec/ - Hundreds of Public Service Alliance
of Canada (PSAC) members working for the federal government will be pounding
the pavement in a Walk for Respect in downtown Moncton. They're protesting the
fact that all they have to show for over a year in negotiations is a 1.5% and
1.2% wage offer from their employer.
    The walk coincides with the union's triennial Atlantic regional
convention taking place in Moncton from June 20 to 22.

    Details about the Walk for Respect:

    When:     Friday, June 20, 2008
              11:45 a.m.

    Where:    The Walk starts at the Hotel Delta Beauséjour (in front of the
              Assumption building) and proceeds to Moncton's City Hall.

    Speakers: John Gordon, PSAC national president
              Patty Ducharme, PSAC national executive vice-president
              Jeannie Baldwin, PSAC regional executive vice-president
              John McLennan, PSAC Union of National Defence Employees
              national president
              Paulette Sadoway, Atlantic Director, Canadian Labour Congress

    PSAC represents over 100,000 workers in five federal public sector
bargaining units. On the day of the Walk, it will have been exactly one year
since most of their contracts expired.
