HALIFAX – The union representing a number of federal public servants says more than two hundred jobs could be affected in New Brunswick with the latest round of federal cuts, many with Human Resources and Social Development Canada.

Jeannie Baldwin of the Public Service Alliance of Canada says cuts range from eight positions in Saint John, to 13 in Moncton, 18 in Fredericton, and 58 in Bathurst.

Baldwin says front line services will be affected.

“These are front-end services that provide a service to the unemployed, senior citizens, persons with disabilities,” Baldwin says. “Workers left a workplace yesterday, devastated going home.”

Baldwin says in Campbellton, for example, half of the eighteen employees in one office received workplace adjustment notices.

In all of Atlantic Canada, nearly six hundred were notices were delivered yesterday.
