After years of service cuts, job cuts and disrespect for hard working public servants, the federal government will hold National Public Service Week from June 15 to 21, 2014, to mark the importance of federal public service employees and to recognize their service to Canadian society.
The Union of Environment Workers Local 70713 recently put together some information for their members around the new Performance Management Program. This information is geared for TB members, but applies equally to all federal government workers - we are republishing it as a resource for members in BC.Performance Management Program – What is it?
Please see the attached notice from PSAC National President Robyn Benson regarding National Public Service Week activities in June. At the February 2014 meeting of the National Board of Directors, we once again called for a boycott of NPSW.Given that, I respectfully ask that PSAC members in BC not participate in employer sponsored activities in your workplace and that you encourage other members to do the same.
We are holding 2 in-person and 3 online meetings for CFIA members in BC. All CFIA bargaining and ratification information is here at the national website.In-person sessions - note: it is not necessary to register, drop by at the indicated time(s): sessions will be held every 1/2 hour.
How do the Conservative government's plans for sick leave affect you? How does this impact our bargaining? How can we work together to keep our negotiated benefits?PSAC BC will be hosting a live and interactive Telephone Town Hall on bargaining and sick leave Monday April 7th at 7PM Pacific Time.
Together, we can save sick leave. The Conservative government wants to strip away sick leave rights and is thinking of contracting out the management of the sick leave system. We say that unless this government wants to talk about improving what we already have, we aren’t interested.
