The staff working in the Collective Bargaining Branch Office

Abudi Awaysheh : Regional Grievance & Adjudications Officer

Laurel Axam : Secretary

I began working for the Government of Canada in April 1980. My 19th birthday was celebrated one week before this. I was a CR-2 in an Unemployment Insurance (now called Employment Insurance) office when I walked my first picket line during the September 1980 CR strike. In 1981 (in May if memory serves) I got a CR-3 position at “CIC Metro” in Vancouver, the regional office for Immigration Canada. Then in September 1981 I got a CR-4 position with Labour Canada. Labour Canada became part of Human Resources Development Canada when it was formed in 1994. While working for Labour Canada and HRDC I held a variety of positions with Local executives in the National Component. The union officer position I held the longest was that of Local Secretary. I stayed with Labour until being assigned to HRDC’s Finance section in 1997. I worked for HRDC (now HRSDC and SDC) until November 2003 when I started working with Deb Seaboyer and Moe Ritchie in the Vancouver Satellite Office, Collective Bargaining Branch of the PSAC.
