CFIA and Parks Webinar Schedule

Important Information

In order to be eligible to vote you must:

Have received your personal identification number by e-mail or Canada Post (See step 1 below)

Ensure you are a member in good standing (MIGS) (See step 2 below)

Attend the mandatory information portion of a  webinar (See step 3 below)

(Please note that gotowebinar is not supported on Internet Explorer. Please use a different browser to register for the webinars (Chrome, Frefox, Edge etc.)

STEP 1: RECEIVE YOUR PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (PIN)

For those PSAC members for whom we have no personal email, we will send a letter in the mail containing your PIN to your home address. If we have a non-employer, personal e-mail address on file, we will instead send you an email with your PIN.

IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED YOUR PIN FOR CFIA AND PARKS UNITS BY OCTOBER 9TH, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR REGIONAL OFFICE

Please take a moment to update your contact information and provide us with your personal, non-work email address. You can update your contact information online by logging into the PSAC member portal or create an account if you don’t already have one.  

If you have not received your PIN by Monday August 31st, and you have checked your junk e-mail folder looking for key words "Intelivote" or "PSAC", please contact your Regional Office


STEP 2: ENSURE YOU ARE A MEMBER IN GOOD STANDING (MIGS)
In some situations, PSAC members cease being members in good standing (MIGS) and lose the right to participate in ratification votes.  To confirm your status, please contact your PSAC component.

If you are on extended leave (e.g., long term disability, maternity or parental leave) and therefore not a member in good standing (MIGS), you can make a request to remain in good standing to the National President via this online form. This will allow you to participate in the ratification vote.

Membership Status

You must be a fullmember to particiapte in the ratification process.  If you have never signed a union card, or if you are unsure if your previously signed card has been processed You can fill out and sign a union card online.

Please take a moment to give us your personal, non-work email address. You can update your contact information online now. 

If you have difficulty updating your information, contact your PSAC Regional Office.


STEP 3: REGISTER FOR A WEBINAR
In order to ensure that members are fully informed prior to casting their ballot, the PSAC constitution requires all members to attend an information session before they vote. These sessions will be held by webinar and will allow members to ask questions regarding the content of the tentative agreement. The dates and times of the webinars are listed below, and you will have to register in advance.  Please note that registrations will close 120 minutes (2 hours) before a webinar starts. Make sure to register early in order to secure your spot.

Attendance will be tracked and only those who registered and attended the full presentation will have their member profile updated on the e-voting system, enabling their vote to count.  If you sign into the webinar after the information portion has started, or sign off before it has ended you will not have met the mandatory requirement under Regulation 15 of the PSAC Constitution.

*YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE RECEIVED YOUR PIN IN ORDER TO REGISTER FOR AND PARTICIPATE IN A WEBINAR*

Online webinar participation is preferred

We strongly recommend joining via browser or the GoToWebinar app (iPhoneAndroid) as this allows us to automatically track your attendance. If you wish to join by phone, you can have your participation counted by briefly joining the webinar via browser or the app and retrieving an audio PIN using the control panel. You can then log off the online webinar to continue listening by calling in by phone and have your participation counted.

If you will be joining by phone and are unable to retrieve an audio PIN through the app or browser, please note that your attendance will not be automatically registered. Therefore, you must inform your PSAC Regional Office of your presence on the webinar. Instructions on how to do so will be provided during the webinar. If we do not have a record of your attendance, your vote will not be counted.

Requests for accommodation

If you require any accommodation to be able to participate fully in the webinars (such as ASL interpretation), please contact your PSAC Regional office as soon as possible.

 

STEP 4: HOW TO VOTE

Voting on the PA, SV, TC, EB and CRA tentative agreements are now closed. 

You will have the opportunity to vote on the CFIA and Parks tentative agreements between October 5th and November 4th, 2020 at 12 p.m. (EST)

Using the PIN that is sent to you by e-mail or mail, you can vote any time during the period noted above after you have attended a webinar outlined in Step 3.

  • Please be aware that if you should be interrupted while voting, you may re-access the voting system to complete your voting.

This vote is by secret ballot. How you vote is entirely confidential.
