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.

Unfortunately, a deal could not be reached and PSAC has now asked the Ontario Labour Relations Board to file a No Board report, allowing for a legal strike or lock-out within 17 days of receiving the report.

Kingston – On June 14, 2016, Commissionaires at CFB Kingston, represented by the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) Local 00818, overwhelmingly rejected the employer’s final offer.

In addition, Commissionaires have sent their employer a message by voting in favour of a strike, should the employer refuse to continue bargaining.

Toronto - On May 16,2016, the Ontario Labour Relations Board certified the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), to represent 92 workers at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming (OLG) Lesmill Lab, an I.T. facility in Toronto.

London - On December 8th, Postdoctoral Fellows (PDFs) at Western University cast ballots in a vote to join the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) Local 610, which has represented academic workers at Western since 1996.

Western refuses to recognize PDFs as employees and has started a costly legal battle to keep the ballot box sealed. PDF’s have exercised their legal right to join a union and want to begin negotiating a first contract with the University.

Toronto – Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) members who work for Canada Border Services Agency and are a part of our Component (Customs and Immigration Union), are warning of changes that are undermining the security of our borders.

In addition to staffing cuts of 1000 front line officers brought about through the government’s budget cuts, we’re seeing the introduction of virtual Offices (Morses line Quebec and Piney Manitoba) where cars report in by phone and are ‘cleared’ by an border officer hundreds of kilometers away.
