PSAC recently participated in a Statistics Canada consultation on the census and called on the government to include questions about LGBTQ2 people in Census 2021.

“It is very important that the 2021 Census include questions about sexual orientation and gender identity,” said Robyn Benson, PSAC National President. “The census needs to reflect the diversity in Canada. Given that this government has said they are committed to diversity and inclusion, this should be a priority for them.”

Our Parks bargaining team will be heading back to the table February 14th – 16th, 2018 in Ottawa. Our team will continue the work needed to reach a fair collective agreement.

The displays of membership solidarity throughout the country has strengthened our team. Your support sends a clear message to the Employer that Parks Canada workers support their bargaining team and are demanding the same rights and benefits that were achieved by the rest of the Federal Public Service.

Our PSAC/UCTE bargaining team met with the Employer January 29 - February 2 in Ottawa. While the pace was slow, we were able to exchange vital information with the Employer, negotiate terms, and sign off on additional language changes to the collective agreement.

As you move forward in the process of deeming and becoming members of our union, PSAC-USJE have created a process to welcome CM input to this round of collective bargaining. We are seeking interested CMs to participate in this round, providing input to our bargaining teams by sharing issues that are important to your community.

Though deeming has been postponed, it is important that you have a voice at this round of negotiations with Treasury Board, your ultimate employer.

PSAC will be your bargaining agent and is responsible for the negotiations process for all members, regardless of Component affiliation. USJE, a Component union of PSAC, provides you with direct servicing with respect to RCMP.

The Public Service Alliance of Canada has filed an interference complaint with the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations and Employment Board (FPSLREB) relating to the government’s failure to collect and remit dues.

“PSAC members pay their dues in order for our union to provide them representation, and the services they need,” said PSAC National President Robyn Benson. “The failure of the government to transfer union dues will hurt PSAC’s ability to represent our members. Phoenix may be the reason, but it isn’t an excuse.”

PSAC members from coast-to-coast-to-coast who are covered under four of the collective agreements with Treasury Board will be gathering in Ottawa, March 26-29, 2018 to elect bargaining teams and discuss proposals for the upcoming round of bargaining.

“PSAC’s number one priority is getting the best deal for our members,” said PSAC National President Robyn Benson. “We have a democratic process for prioritizing the proposals we bring to the bargaining table. The bargaining conference is a critical step in ensuring our members have their say.”

Over 100,000 federal public service workers are covered under the PA, TC, SV, and EB collective agreements.
