Kamloops – Federal public service workers and allies will gather outside Cathy McLeod's office at a rally calling on the federal government to take the measures necessary to ensure public service workers are paid correctly and on time.
“Federal government workers in Kamloops worry constantly about whether or not they will receive a correct pay cheque, or one at all.” says Eddy Bourque, National President of the Canada Employment and Immigration Union. “We are calling on the government to fix their payroll system once and for all.”
Many thanks to Giselle Henry, Aboriginal Coordinator on the PSAC BC Regional Council, who has volunteered to prepare a monthly listing of community events - many of which are related to Indigenous issues - from around the province that may be of interest to PSAC members. Here's the event listing for September.Prince Rupert
Friends, Sisters, Brothers, Local Presidents and Executive members,
I encourage you to consider affiliating your Local to the District Labour Council (DLC) in your area. Joining a DLC provides a valuable opportunity for PSAC members to gather with fellow union members to exchange information, extend mutual support, and represent the interests of working people in your community.
On Friday, February 24, PSAC will mark the first anniversary of Phoenix.
We want to continue to draw attention to the Phoenix pay system and its problems and send a strong message to the Prime Minister and MPs that our members have been waiting for too long; fix the Phoenix pay problems and learn from your mistakes!
Here are some ideas for how PSAC members can send a strong message to the government and our employers on February 24th.
To: PSAC National Aboriginal Peoples Circle members in BC
In order to maximize participation of our Aboriginal membership at the Sacred Water Ceremony in Victoria, BC on December 10, 2016 the National Aboriginal Peoples Circle has provided limited funding to assist with travel costs.
Aboriginal members who have self identified and are in good standing with PSAC may be approved to claim up to $75.00 dollars per member for such minor costs as mileage, local transit or ferry.
Greetings Sisters and Brothers,
The federal government has promised that by October 31, 2016, all of the remaining cases of the Phoenix pay system will be resolved. You can see PSAC’s National Executive Vice-President, Chris Aylward discuss PSAC’s reaction to this promise on CTV.

On August 8 the PSAC/UTE bargaining team resumed negotiations with the employer while members showed their support in worksites across the country. Together we let CRA management know that we expect a fair contract, and we are ready to stand together and take further action if we don’t see significant improvements at the bargaining table.Because it’s 2016, and four years is far too long to wait for a fair contract!
