AKWESASNE, NY, May 11 /PRNewswire/ - The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) is looking forward to a positive conclusion to the conciliation process currently under way between the Union and the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne.

The PSAC represents 75 elementary teachers and education assistants employed by the Council. The teachers work at schools in Quebec and Ontario. Negotiations between the PSAC and the Council started in August 2008 and all the non-monetary issues have been successfully negotiated.

"We are confident we will soon reach a fair and equitable first collective agreement for these new PSAC members", said Gerry Halabecki, PSAC Regional Executive Vice-President for Ontario.

Halabecki added that the PSAC is uniquely suited to represent the aboriginal teachers of Akwesasne as the union already represents a large number of First Nation workers in all regions of the country.

In 2003 the union established a national network of its First Nation, Inuit and Metis members and was the first union in the country to have a national conference solely for Aboriginal members. The National Aboriginal Peoples' Network works to raise issues of concern to Aboriginal workers and communities both in and outside the union. The Network also encourages Aboriginal Peoples to take leadership roles in all aspects of the union and advance their rights in the broader community.
