PSAC is scheduling meetings for members in the PA, TC, SV and EB groups across BC in May and June. This is your opportunity to meet with and speak to members of the Treasury Board bargaining team, hear an update on the status of negotiations, and ask questions.
Updated June 10 with details for Skype call.
At their meeting held over the weekend, the PSAC BC Regional Council joined many other groups in endorsing the campaign calling for the elimination of pay parking at BC hospitals. Pay parking brings relatively minimal funding into the medical system, but creates a barrier to accessing medical care and places unnecessary stress on patients and their loved ones. Members are encouraged to find out more and join the campaign by visiting www.hospitalpayparking.ca

Federal public service workers are showing up every day to deliver crucial services we all depend on—even though they stopped getting paid properly. Over 200,000 workers and their families are still suffering financial and emotional fallout from the Phoenix pay system disaster.
