Dear NB Union member,
As winter hopefully comes to an end, let’s take a minute to reflect on this past winter season. We all know it has been a long, treacherous and often very inconvenient winter across the province. Knowing your line of work often puts you in potential harm’s way and having to brave the storms to do your jobs and serve the people of this province, I want to sincerely thank you for all your hard work and dedication. Even in times of massive storms, closures, bad road conditions, whiteouts, power outages, your everyday commitment to providing a good quality service to New Brunswickers does not go unnoticed or unappreciated. When others are at home, you are the front-line workers and whether it be your brothers and sisters working in our hospitals, patrolling our highways or nursing homes workers, you are often asked to work longer than expected hours, or in conditions that are less than ideal but you do it to assure the safety and well-being of our citizens, and for that we are grateful. You should be proud of the work you do.
On behalf of the New Brunswick Union, I want to thank you!

The New Brunswick Union launches a new TV Ad
The New Brunswick Union has launched a new television ad in which we talk about the importance of unions. Whether it’s here in the province or elsewhere in the country, union members make a difference in our everyday lives.
Our way of life is much different than it was 50 years ago due to the hard work of unions. The New Brunswick Union is building on that progress and is working towards a stronger tomorrow, for people all over the province, for your sons and daughters.
Whether it’s by keeping our roads safe, teaching our community college students, providing medical care in our hospitals, or providingsupport services across Government departments, the greatest strength we have in our “brand” is through our 8,500 members and the work they do towards a better New Brunswick.
You can view our new television ad for 2013-2014 below.

There are many unsung heroes in the history of Inclusive Education in New Brunswick. They are the people who have worked quietly yet diligently to foster relationships, with the goal of creating a level playing field for students with a disability. Wayne Milner, a counsellor at the New Brunswick Community College’s Moncton Campus, is one such person. Wayne Milner received an inclusive education award from the Canadian Association for Community Living (CACL). The New Brunswick Union wishes to congratulate Mr. Milner on this award.
The certificate was presented at a ceremony organized by the New Brunswick Association for Community Living (NBACL), at Government House in Fredericton. A focal point of NBACL’s celebrations marking National Inclusive Education Month in New Brunswick, the ceremony was hosted by the Honourable Graydon Nicholas, Lieutenant-Governor of New Brunswick and the association’s patron, who was joined the Honourable Marie-Claude Blais, Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development, and Joy Bacon, president of NBACL, in making the presentations. A total of ten awards were given to individuals and groups for their efforts for inclusive education.
