PSAC members who work at the OLG Rideau Carleton Raceway Slots facility in Ottawa have been locked out, please sign the petition of support!

PSAC Treasury Board bargaining teams came to Ottawa this week to prepare for the next round of bargaining.

Bargaining dates have now been set for February 1-5.  While the teams initially expected to bargain in December, these dates were delayed to give the new government time to improve its mandate.

The Public Service Alliance of Canada is pleased to see that the federal government is taking the issue of violence against Aboriginal women seriously by launching an inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.

“Our union is committed to supporting the government inquiry and to standing up for the rights of all Indigenous women in Canada,” said Robyn Benson, PSAC National President. 

The Public Service Alliance of Canada applauds the federal government’s decision to re-open Veterans Affairs offices in nine cities within one year.

“The announcement from Veterans Affairs Minister Kent Hehr that the nine offices will re-open within a year is a significant victory for all of the veterans and advocates who worked so hard on the campaign to reopen the offices. We are ecstatic that veterans will have access to in-person services once again,” said Robyn Benson, PSAC National President.

On December 6th, 1989, 14 women were gunned down by Marc Lepine as he chanted “I hate feminists” at Ecole Polytechniques in Montreal. They were murdered because they were women.

Sadly this is far from a single event. The harsh reality is that upwards of 300 women and children flee violence every day in Canada and sorrowfully, many do not make it out alive.

December 6th is a day for us to band together, to mourn and remember, not only for these 14 women but for all our Sisters who suffer gender-based violence.

The Public Service Alliance of Canada is pleased with the release of the Mental Health Joint Task Force report today. It is an important step in improving federal public service workplaces.

Task Force created through collective bargaining

PSAC pushed for the establishment of a joint task force in the current round of bargaining with Treasury Board.  An agreement was reached in March 2015.
