The Federation of Post-Secondary Educators of BC (FPSE) is pleased to announce the appointment of Maureen Shaw to the Board of Directors of the Canadian Labour and Business Centre (CLBC). Currently, Ms. Shaw is the President of the National Union of the Canadian Association of University Teachers and Vice-President of the Kwantlen Faculty Association (FPSE Local 5).

The CLBC was established in 1984 and has become Canada's longest-standing centre for business-labour dialogue and consensus building. The Centre's focus is on labour market and skills issues and is the lead organization for the Work and Learning Knowledge Centre of the Canadian Council on Learning.

"I look forward to not only representing the labour movement in this important debate, but also speaking out for post-secondary educators. It is critical that labour's priorities are reflected in policies that CLBC develops on skills issues across the country", said Ms. Shaw.

Currently, the CLBC is co-chaired by Kenneth Georgetti (Labour), President of the Canadian Labour Congress, and Perrin Beatty (Business), President and Chief Executive Officer of the Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters.
