The RCEA would like to welcome Debbie Cooper to your Association, taking over the labour relations and negotiations portfolios after the retirement of our long-standing negotiator, Joan Van Den Bergh.  Debbie comes to us from another federal union and has many years of experience in all aspects of labour relations and negotiations.  In that regard, she has worked at a number of federal unions over the last 20 + years. In addition, from 2013-2018, she was the General Secretary of the National Joint Council (NJC) of the Public Service of Canada, of which the RCEA and the NRC are members.  Debbie is a member of the bargaining team negotiating the renewal of your Public Service Healthcare Plan and is a union-side appointee to the Public Service Pension Advisory Committee.
