TorontoThe Customs and Immigration Union (CIU) and the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), will be demonstrating at Pearson Airport. This demonstration is meant to draw attention to the ongoing bargaining process between the government and Border Services officers.

Event information:

Kingston – On March 9, 2018, following a coordinated organizing campaign, Queen’s University voluntarily recognized Professional Student Teaching Assistants in the Juris Doctor and Doctor of Medicine programs as falling within the existing Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) bargaining unit.

Toronto – 400 workers represented by the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) who work for the Ontario Lottery and Gaming (OLG) corporation Slots at Woodbine have secured a new collective agreement.

Workers had been locked-out by the OLG as of July 14, 2017, and had been picketing the Woodbine site for nearly 3 weeks.

PSAC’s bargaining team met with the OLG and a conciliation officer on Tuesday, August 1, 2017. After a lengthy day of negotiations, a tentative agreement was reached with the unanimous endorsement of our bargaining team.

KINGSTON, Ont. - John MacLennan’s 18-year tenure as Union of National Defense Employees (UNDE) National President will close the same way it began – defending the rights of workers.

MacLennan will join federal public service workers from across Kingston and the Islands in a mass rally to protest the Phoenix pay system fiasco. The rally will take place outside the office of Liberal MP Mark Gerretsen on August 2, 2017, followed by a farewell BBQ for MacLennan.

Toronto – Over 400 workers represented by the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), and employed by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming (OLG) corporation have been locked-out as of July 14, 2017. 

“Where is the Liberal Government? Do we need to call this lockout a fundraiser before a Liberal shows up,” states Sharon DeSousa, PSAC Ontario Regional Executive Vice-President. “These 400 workers and their families deserve more from their government, a government that has claimed it wants to deal with precarious work.”
