In 1966, the United Nations proclaimed March 21st as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

While there has been some progress with respect to racial justice, racism persists in Canadian society, there has also been some erosion of human rights over the past decade. 

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives today released its 2016 Alternative Federal Budget (AFB). 

The AFB projects a federal deficit of $29.2 billion for 2016-17 when Liberal platform measures are taken into account. It also delivers a blueprint showing how the government could take on a $37.9 billion deficit and still maintain Canada’s debt-to-GDP ratio.

The AFB proposes to reverse cuts made to the public service and introduce a program review process to make the public service more transparent and adaptive to the needs of everyone, to be ramped up to $2 billion per year.

At the 2015 PSAC Ontario Young Workers Summit, members spoke about the importance of unions in advancing issues affecting young workers.

Out of this Summit came a fantastic video, highlighting our union’s work in engaging our young members in the Labour Movement.

Check out the video here: https://youtu.be/wCg88Sq-CAQ and please share it with your friends and colleagues.

“The PSAC’s position all along has been that Bill C-377 was unconstitutional and a violation of privacy rights. We are pleased that the Liberal government has moved quickly to repeal Bills C-377 and C-525.”

“Both bills were seriously flawed, introduced without consultation with unions or employers and detrimental to the rights of workers,” said Robyn Benson, PSAC National President.
