On August 9, PSAC and thousands of citizens across the globe participated in the World Social Forum (WSF) opening march in Montreal.

The march kicked off the Forum and sending a strong message: we can help build a better world.

“We are well aware that implementing the Phoenix pay system has created serious financial consequences and significant stress for many of our members and other federal public service workers,” said PSAC National President Robyn Benson. “We have been putting a lot of effort into getting the government to make this right for our members.”

PSAC, together with the other federal public service unions, has been pushing the government to compensate those hurt by the implementation of Phoenix.

The Public Service Alliance of Canada joins Indigenous Peoples in recognizing the importance of the newly-launched National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.

The union also supports the suggestions of the Native Women’s Association of Canada and other groups to improve the scope and inclusiveness of the inquiry, including:

PSAC Ontario is calling members and the public to send a letter the Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Premier of Ontario Kathleen Wynne to stop discriminatory underfunding of First Nations policing.

The Nishnawbe-Aski Police Service officers provide culturally sensitive policing services in 35 First Nation communities, covering two thirds of Ontario, from Thunder Bay to Hudson’s Bay. These officers are working alone without proper infrastructure, support, or back up.

The 2017 PSAC NATIONAL EQUITY CONFERENCES will be held March 24 to 28, 2017 at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel.

This event offers delegates the opportunity to participate in one or more of the five equity conferences.  In addition, space exists to explore common human rights issues and areas of intersectionality.

We encourage you to personally inform the members and activists in your Locals and Committees to ensure they are made aware of these conferences. Bulletin boards may not always be accessible and additional outreach is very important.
