Haiti - Reconstruction : Launch of construction of a HQ for Haitian unions
Four representatives of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE - SCFP in french) and a representative of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC - AFPC in french) are currently on site in Haiti to launch the construction of a new building for Haitian unions. They are also accompanied by Denis Malo of the firm Courbec, specializing in management and property development.

"We are here to launch the new building for the unions" said Claude Généreux, National Secretary-Treasurer of SCFP "We even attended to the cleanup of the land where the new building OF the CTSP Will be built." The delegation also met with the Haitian engineer involved in the reconstruction project. The cost of the reconstruction project valued at nearly $100,000.

We are gone further, by providing training to 15 Union leaders, including on the Union financial management. While the international aid does not always have the desired effect, this collaboration interunion, represents our effort in the reconstruction not only of the infrastructure but also of the capacity of unions and to the Haitian civil society."
