On September 14, 2015, Canada’s 17 federal public service unions filed a complaint with the International Labour Organization (ILO) against the Government of Canada for failing to comply with the international Convention that protects the right of workers to free collective bargaining.

If you are caring for a relative, particularly one with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia, you know that caregiving is a resource-intensive responsibility. 

Caregiving is especially taxing when you are also engaged in paid employment. It becomes a balancing act that often results in higher levels of work-life conflict, as well as emotional and physical strain.

A new survey is asking employed caregivers to share their experiences.

Nearly 400 workers at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation’s head office have chosen to unionize and join the PSAC family.

This comes after nearly 6 years of wage freezes and insecurity due to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming (OLG) Corporation’s move to privatize the industry.

Our union, local 818 has been bargaining with the Corps of Commissionaires Kingston Division since February 2015. Negotiations stalled when the employer walked away from the bargaining table March 10, refusing to discuss paid sick leave for our military veterans.

The Commissionaires, with support of a couple PSAC Local 901 members and the local Kingston and Islands NDP candidate Daniel Beals, handed out flyers outlining their struggle with the Corps of Commissionaires for a fair sick leave program. 

Greetings Sisters and Brothers,

Your PSAC Ontario Council has created a quick, 5 minute, online survey to get your feedback on Council’s priorities.

We are asking all members to take a moment to fill out this survey, so that we are better able to serve PSAC Ontario’s 30,000 members.

The survey can be found online here: http://goo.gl/forms/YfkQdQZWZt

The survey will be open till September 30, 2015.

In Solidarity,

PSAC Ontario Council Representatives
