PSAC and the University of Western Ontario celebrate the Daryl T. Bean Professorship in Law and Women’s Studies

PSAC President Robyn Benson was the guest speaker at the University of Western Ontario in London, for the celebration of the Daryl T. Bean Professorship in Law and Women’s Studies.


The professorship was created in 2006 at the request of the PSAC’s first university local which represents the graduate students employed as teaching assistants at UWO.

For Robyn Benson, it is particularly fitting that the Professorship in Law and Women’ Studies would be named after Daryl.

“Under Daryl’s leadership, our union fought for and won important improvements in the lives of working women, both at the bargaining table and in the courts,” Benson said.

UWO agreed to match PSAC’s contribution to support the professorship over a period of ten years, from 2010 to 2019.

The current holder of the Professorship is Professor Gillian Demeyere. Her main area of research is in the area of Employment Law and Equality Law, with a focus on the relationship between the contract of employment and the principles of equality and inclusion given expression in Canadian Human Rights Law.

As PSAC President, Daryl filed the pay equity complaint against the federal government that led to a $3.2 billion settlement. In 1991, he led the largest national strike in Canada’s history against the federal government.

Daryl Bean was elected PSAC National President on July 21, 1985. He held the position for five terms and retired in 2000.
