Phoenix Steward/Pay Advocate Assemblies in ON region

PSAC has scheduled training for pay advocates, normally local officers or stewards, that have been assisting members with Phoenix issues. This training will provide information and training on tools specifically for assisting those with pay issues. It will also provide information on our key objectives in pressuring the government to address and resolve Phoenix.

Objectives of the one-day course include:
•Orienting Pay Advocates to the union
•Providing an overview of Phoenix debacle and what PSAC has done
•Explaining the strategy PSAC is adopting to address Phoenix
•Exploring advocacy – what to do, not to do
•Next steps - where to go from here as a Pay Advocate

This training is open to PSAC members who are interested in stepping into the Pay Advocate role to provide assistance to members experiencing pay related problems. These may include existing member advocates (local executive, stewards, members etc.) or members who are engaging in their union for the first time. Participants must have the approval/authorization of the Local Executive to participate. Please ensure that at least one Executive, Steward or person designated by the local as a “Pay Advocate” signs up for this important training and information session.
