London – Postdoctoral Fellows (PDFs) at Western University have voted to join the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) to improve their working conditions.

Western had challenged the employment status of all PDFs, stating that they were in fact not employees of the university. This challenge delayed the opening of the ballot box, which held the ballots of these workers on whether they wished to unionize.

Thunder Bay – The Public Service Alliance of Canada’s (PSAC) negotiating team met with a conciliator to attempt to negotiate a fair agreement with the Nishnawbe-Aski Police Service (NAPS) on August 24, 2016.
