On behalf of PIPSC members, I would like to extend my heartfelt congratulations to Chris Aylward as newly elected National President for the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC). I look forward to continued work with President Aylward on issues of joint significance to our members. When PIPSC and PSAC work together we achieve great things and I know our successful collaboration will continue with President Aylward’s strong leadership.
I would also like to congratulate Magali Picard, who has been elected National Executive Vice President, and Sharon DeSousa, elected as Alternative National Executive Vice President. I look forward to working with these two exceptional leaders.
In closing, I wish a happy retirement to outgoing National President Robyn Benson and express a big PIPSC thank you for her passionate leadership and achievements for federal public employees.
